Merits and Mistakes: General You Have Made the Mistake of Your Life

By Walter E. Busch-  To describe the book is hard, as it goes into deep research of General Thomas Ewing- his early years, his family, his military career and his actions during the war.  And along the way, his merits and the mistakes are noted and explained. Within the well written text are charts showing the impact of Order # 11 as are the telegrams sent by Dr. Seymour Carpenter during the battle at Pilot Knob in 1864. A behind the scenes look at the battle gives a new perspective.  Excellent, easy read. Contains 224 pages of text and full index, bibliographical section and family and notables photographs. Soft-cover.
