Overview

Daniel Harvey Hill or D.H. Hill (July 12, 1821 – September 24, 1889) was a Confederate general during the Civil War who was known as an aggressive leader, and as an austere, deeply religious man, with a dry, sarcastic humor. He was brother-in-law to Stonewall Jackson and a close friend to both James Longstreet and Joseph E. Johnston, but disagreements with both Robert E. Lee and Braxton Bragg cost him favor with Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Although his military ability was well respected, he was underutilized by the end of the Civil War due to the aforementioned political reasons. Longstreet would later incur the wrath of some of his former Confederate comrades by writing that Hill was not given command of a corps due to political intrigue, which was considered an implicit criticism of Lee.

As a division leader in the Army of Northern Virginia, Hill had to write official accounts of his campaigns, and they were preserved in The War of the Rebellion: Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies. Hill wrote an official report of the Seven Days Battles, and this edition of his official account includes maps of the campaign, as well as pictures of the important commanders of the battle.
