"One of the better Confederate narratives; written by an upper-class Southerner and strongly revealing for social conditions in the Confederacy" Nevins I, p.51. "Anderson's military activities were confined to the Mississippi Valley, first in Missouri, then from Boonville to Springfield, back to Lexington, and on to the Kansas border. after the battle of Pea Ridge, his forces went on through Arkansas by way of Fayetteville, Van Buren, and Des Arc to Memphis. After this period most of his experiences were in Mississippi. This is among the best of all accounts relating to the South during the war" Coulter 7.
