Military Memoirs of a Confederate

Page 554 Alexander looks at June 18th, 1864 from both a Confederate and Union perspective. After describing the Union's attacks he remarks on page 556, "On the Confederate side, the day was not considered a day of battle, but only of demonstations and reconnoissance."
