1897, First Edition, The Century Company, New York, 546 pages. The personal narrative of General Porter, General Grant's Aide-de-Camp upon his assumption of Commanding General of the Army until the end of the war. From the Preface, The object aimed at in this narrative is to recount the daily acts of General Grant in the field, to describe minutely his personal traits and habits, and to explain the motives which actuated him in important crises by giving his criticisms upon events in the language employed by him at the time they took place. The chief effort of the author has been to enable readers to view the Union commander near by, and to bring them into such intimate contact with him that they may know him as familiarly as those who served by his side.
