Lincolnís Abolitionist General: The Biography of David Hunter, by Edward A. Miller, Jr

Columbia, SC: University of South Carolina, 1997. 293 pp. Notes, bibliog, index. $29.95. ISBN:1-57003-110-X.

A good, but not entirely satisfactory biography of one of the more interesting Union commanders. Although stressing his laudable efforts to help "contrabands" and to raise black troops, the work by no means overlooks Hunterís services as a field commander, though it perhaps lets him off lightly for some of his failures in this regard.
