About the Author

Theodore Lyman III (1833-1897) was a natural scientist, military staff officer during the American Civil War, and United States Representative from Massachusetts.

In May 1863 Lyman began his service on the staff of Major General George G. Meade as an aide-de-camp with a commission as lieutenant-colonel from Governor Andrew of Massachusetts. Lyman served under Meade for the remainder of the war from September 2, 1863, to April 20, 1865.

His published letters and notebooks establish him as the pre-eminent recorder of events and personalities within the headquarters of Army of the Potomac.

After the war, he became a companion of the Massachusetts Commandery of the Loyal Legion.
