The attached 1912 book review is a wonderful ride, punctuated with interesting descriptions of the Civil War's most prominent players throughout all its four pages.
The memoir reviewed was The Sunset of the Confederacy by former Confederate General Morris Schaff (1840-1929), author of The Battle of the Wilderness (1910).
"We doubt that whether there is any Southern book more chivalrous in generosity of judgment about Southern leaders than is this; or a more emotional seizure of the passion, pathos, and heroism of the last days of the Lost Cause."
