    I just bought a similar book, Butler's Book, Autobiography and Reminiscenses of Major General Benjamin F Butler. 1882. It seems like the Civil War Generals made a cottage industry of publishing there memoirs.

    Actually over 100 Generals were killed during the Civil War-- they were very much on the battlefield and involved in directing units and troops during the fight.

    A quick list would include-- Johnston, Jackson, McPherson, Kearny, Morgan, Stuart, Sedgwick, Polk....

    N.B. Forrest also comes to mind as a General who moved to the thick of the fight and by some accounts had 30 horses shot out from under him and personally killed at least as many soldiers.

    Nice book. I have to agree with Scott and Civil War Generals....most were in the heat of combat......

    * 8 Generals died JUST at the battle of Gettysburg in 1863. For the U.S. was: Reynolds, Weed, Zook, Vincent and Farnsworth. For the South C.S.A, was: Armisted, Garnett, and Pettigrew. Now add ALL the other battles from the Civil War, and you will see that a BUNCH of Generals were killed. Just a friendly educational note
