This was mentioned in an older thread on the "Suggestions, Comments, News & Discussion" board where listeners and LV-ers were recommending titles to check out. One person mentioned this book, which is not something as yet in our collection. Someone suggested that the poster mention it over here in "Book Suggestions" but it doesn't look like that ever happened, so I thought I'd go ahead and do it!

The book was Recollections of a Confederate Staff Officer, suggested by "mammamimi", who wrote about it:

"Recollections of a Confederate staff officer by Gilbert Moxely Sorrel. Written before he died in 1901 and published in 1905. It is in the Public Domain. It is a righthand account of the Civil War. Moxley Sorrel was Longstreet's right hand man. He was featured in the movie Gettysburg and a couple of other books. It's more of a look behind the scenes of the civil war. What was going on in-between battles, etc.

It's not on Gutenberg at this point, but it's on Internet Archive:
