Excerpt from The Photographic History of the Civil War, Vol. 10 of 10: Armies and Leaders

The editors, therefore, determined to devote an entire vol ume to the consideration of the personnel of the Union and Confederate armies. But in this field, vaster than most of the present generation have imagined, even a book as extensive as a volume of the photographic history can be no more than suggestive.

Consider the typical fighting man on the Union side alone - the brevet brigadier-general, or the colonel, often deserving of promotion to that rank. When it is re¿ected that the rank of brevet brigadier-general was conferred upon eleven hundred and seventy Federal officers who never attained the full rank, and that the colonels who displayed conspicuous gallantry num bered as many, perhaps twice as many, more, it is evident that the editors of the photographic history, in presenting por traits of more than three hundred of the generals, by brevet, have made this feature of the work as comprehensive as possi ble. To exhaust the list of such officers would require a sepa rate volume.

Consistency, likewise, would demand at least another vol ume for colonels. But who would undertake to decide What particular thousand among the upward of ten thousand claim ants among this rank should have a place in the gallery of fame? And if gallant colonels, why not the equally gallant lieutenant colonels, ma ors, and captains, who at times commanded regi ments?
