"In the 1890s, William Riddick Whitehead M.D. put down on paper a memoir of his life and adventures as a surgeon in the Crimean War and for the Confederate Army during America's Civil War. The completed manuscript is dated September 15, 1902. Dr. Whitehead sent the manuscript to a safety deposit box in Denver just before his death one month later, according to an obituary in the local newspapers. In 1984, the manuscript was found in an old safe in that city, but its existence was not brought to the attention of his descendants until 1998. The manuscript was returned to the family in 2002. This book is a photocopy of Dr. Whitehead's original manuscript, which was never published. It has been produced by Karen McComas, Dr. Whitehead's great-granddaughter, and by Frances Ross, a collateral descendant of Dr. Whitehead."--Foreword.
