KRICK, IN TALLER COTTON 152: ‘Richmond journalist Pollard launched this summary of the battles around Richmond into print almost before the sulfurous gun smoke dissipated over the scenes of the fighting Although Pollard grumbled in a preface about General Lee’s security-driven, inhospitable attitude toward newspapermen (’the exclusion from the lines of our armies of those whose province it has hitherto been to chronicle the events of the war’), plenty of first-hand evidence appears in these pages, all of it obviously of distinctly contemporary immediacy.’ CRANDALL 2654.
