Rec⁣ollections of the Civil War by Charles Anderson Dana (1819 - 1897]
Charles Dana was invited to work in the Union War Department [1863-5 ] as part of the administration


⁣I was impressed by C. Dana's personal observation of Gen. Grants administrative staff which, Dana, outlined in Ch. 5. This provides the reader with a peculiarly sensitive insight into the disposition of U. S. Grant.
