[The Northup brothers'] commentary centers on the mundane, if typical, aspects of military life such as their daily routines and camp life, and they offer opinions about military leaders, weather, scenery, and prospects for peace. James demonstrates his disdain for 'Copperheads' and for African Americans. The editor's helpful introduction suggest that these letters are typical of soldiers' writings during war." --Journal of the West
