In our opinion, General Carrington’s work is an authority, showing great labor and careful study, and it should become a national test-book, and find a place in all public and private libraries.—­Indianapolis (Ind.) Herald.

Each map is accompanied with a statement of the generals and number of men engaged on both sides, to which is appended the reason for such battle or engagement, with remarks by the author, who is excellent authority in military matters.—­The Educator (New Haven, Ct.).

A valuable compilation from the author’s large work, and cannot fail to make a more lasting impression upon the reader’s mind than could be derived from the perusal of many volumes of history.—­N.Y.  Herald.

Each map is accompanied by a page of text, arranged upon a compact and original system, so as to present a singularly clear view of the history and significance of the engagement in question, the names of the chief and subordinate commanders, the forces, nominal and available, the losses on each side, and the incidents of the battle.—­N.Y.  Evening Post.
