The editors and publishers wish to make public acknowledgment for the many courtesies extended them by the authors and publishers of other historical works, particularly for permission to use extracts to substantiate statements made in the text. Without the aid of some of these books our task would indeed have been heavy, but through the kindness of their authors and publishers our burden has been materially lightened. To the following firms we therefore return thanks: Houghton, Mifflin and Company; Harper and Brothers; Doubleday, Page and Company; G. P. Putnam's Sons; J. B. Lippincott Company; MacMillan Company; Longmans, Green and Company; A. C. McClurg and Company; D. Appleton and Company; Charles Scribner's Sons; Little, Brown and Company; E. B. Treat and Company; Century Company; Henry Holt and Company; Baker and Taylor Company; Ginn and Company; Boston Book Company; Small, Maynard and Company; S. S. Scranton and Company; Salem Press Company. Through the courtesy of the Review of Reviews Company, publishers of the Photographic History of the Civil War, we were able to extend our own collection of Brady photographs of the Civil War, and to them and to the Patriot Publishing Company, owners of the copyright, we are grateful for enabling us more graphically to depict that stupendous struggle.
