This book must be regarded as the most valuable general contribution to the history of the State yet made. In the preparation of it the author has displayed wonderful industry in collecting so much of interest and importance. His work possesses the greatest merit, however, in that its accuracy of statements of fact is in the main without fault. The county histories give it a local flavor, at the same time increasing its utility. The biographies are numerous, but their presentation is so excellent, that personal interest in the work is enhanced. The War Record here presented is the fullest account that has been published about Alabama troops in the several wars.
