Forgotten Hero: General James B. McPherson
Author: Elizabeth J. Whaley
From Preface: "Beloved of Grant, intimate of Sherman, idol of his army, Major General James B. McPherson made a meteoric rise to fame almost unparalleled in American history. His untimely death before Atlanta cut off a career that many military men and civilians predicted would carry him to the White House. He was the highest-ranking officer and the only army commander in the Federal forces killed in the great war."
