Civil War historian John Oeffinger offers a picture of Major General Lafayette McLaws, a central figure in the Confederacy and yet a relatively obscure figure historically. Ninety-five of McLaws's pre-war and wartime letters are presented and Oeffinger's introduction marks the first significant biography of McLaws, who as Oeffinger puts it in his introduction, has remained virtually invisible over the last century.
