Excerpt from The Battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, Vol. 1<br><br>Union army. They have done this because of a misapprehen sion of facts that were covered up by the most wily tricksof conspirators, which I propose to unearth. Many of these writers have passed away, but their works live on and are being read, studied, commented upon and will be, if not corrected, to theend of time. They were written during and soon after the cam paign, when history was largely made from newspaper reports of correspondents who were unreliable. Here the errors crept into their works and for lack of thorough investigation have been perpetuated. Over 35 years have passed since the great battle - of Chancellorsville, whichsstarted off so magnificently, but ended so barren of good results. As to the cause of the defeat of the Union army, public opinion has been divided. I propose to correct the errors that have led to this division and make the cause of their defeat so plain that there will not be any doubt in the future of the justification of my conclusions. That there was treachery and the most wicked conspiracy on the part of men high in rank and power to defeat the Union army and drive General Hooker from his command will be shown by such authorities that no one will question the correct ness of the above statements after reading this work. All I ask is a fair, unprejudiced consideration of all the facts presented The story is a sad one, but sad as it appears, the evidences of its truthfulness are so abundant, as the work progresses, that no fair-minded person will doubt my conclusions.
