This is a book by Thomas Coooper DeLeon, a southern playwright and author.
I have to say I thought this book was a complete waste. The author comes across as one of those folks who lets others go off and fight the battles while he stays behind and goes to parties. He then writes what he read in the newspapers about what was happening in the war and adds some of the conversations he had with his friends. I couldn’t wait to come to the end of this book.
