Abstract:

The diary of General Patrick provides an officer's record of the second level of command and policy formulation in the Union forces. It is an informal first-hand account of the inside story of the Army of the Potomac, and is more complete than any other for the period. Written by a man who wanted to limit the war and curb its barbarities, it reveals a Union soldier with an abiding compassion for the men and women of Virginia and a determination to ease their lot in any way consonant with the mission of his Army.
