The letters of Theodore Lyman, an aide-de-camp to General George Meade, offer a witty and penetrating inside view of the Civil War. Scholar and Boston Brahmin, Lyman volunteered for service following the battle at Gettysburg. From September 1863 to the end of the war, he wrote letters almost daily to his wife. Colonel Lyman's early letters describe life in winter quarters. Those written after General Grant assumes command chronicle the Army of the Potomac's long-awaited move against the Army of Northern Virginia. Lyman covered the field, delivering messages.

As a general's aide, he was privy to headquarters planning, gossip, and politics. No one escaped his discerning eye-neither "the flaxen Custer" nor Abraham Lincoln, who struck him as "a highly intellectual and benevolent Satyr." After capably serving General Meade ("Old Peppery"), Lyman accompanied him to Appomattox Court House and there observed the dignified, defeated General Lee.
