Leading U. C. V.

Preface
In presenting this work to the public I cannot refrain from expressing surprise at the lack of interest which the Veterans have shown in the book. It was to be expected that the number who would insert portraits would necessarily be limited; but that so few should have responded to the circular asking that war records be sent in is a matter difficult to comprehend. It is possibly to be accounted for by reason of the advanced age of the Veterans, and the little and brief interest they show in any matter.
Of late, however, a desire to insert portraits and records has been manifested, but the long-delayed publication could not be deferred to accommodate these parties. It has been decided, then, to issue a second volume of work if there should be found a number interested sufficient to warrant such an undertaking. Those who contemplate taking advantage of this offer should at once communicate with me.
