|Summary, etc.:|| "The following articles are portions of a series which appeared originally in Wilkes' spirit of the times, and which were devoted to the review of General McClellan and his battles, from the time of the commencement of his career at Ball's Bluff, down to what Mr. Wilkes has justly characterized as 'the unspeakably disgraceful battle of Antietam' ... Mr. Wilkes began to criticise McClellan's movements, and in placing a few of his articles before the public, in connected form, it is not out of place to state, that the universal verdict of the country has attributed more influence to them in removing McClellan from command, than all other pressures put together"--Preface.
