    1. Wonderful detail and great stuff about a subset of the war on the Western Rivers unfortunately compromised by a very rapid paragraph to paragraph change from Union to Confederate viewpoints and back, which can sometimes be difficult to follow is the Lee mentioned in this paragraph Confederate officer Steven D Lee or Union officer Albert Lee Etc Worth the time, but needs to be read carefully.
