Praise

(unknown)
"'Destruction and Reconstruction'...is perhaps the masculine document that, from the point of view of realistic intelligence, is most nearly comparable to Mary Chestnut's diary...With Taylor and with Mrs. Chestnut, we are always in the world of the Confederate gentry, and the weakness of its situation is brought out for us all more vividly by the brilliance of the minds that describe it." - Edmund Wilson

(unknown)
"Filled with blunt assessments of leaders of both sides, memorable character sketches, and some of the most famous personal observations in Civil War literature, his narrative merits the attention of anyone interested in the military side of the conflict in which Taylor played a conspicuous part." - Gary W. Gallagher
