[Toledo or Cincinnati, OH?]: np, 1882. Broadsheet. 45 x 14 cm. Addressed "To the Editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer," with a date line of "Toledo, Ohio, January 31, 1882." Old fold lines, slight stain to upper left corner, otherwise very good. No OCLC, nor have we found located elsewhere. The author takes to task the Cincinnati Enquirer for taking General Steedman statements as truth that he and his men saved Gen. Thomas and the Union Army at Chickamauga. Waggoner provides statements from other officers who credited General Granger. He also gets a quote from J.T. Woods, the writer of a book on Steedman who states he was "surprised and chagrined" to discover the discrepancies between Steedman's statements and the official records. Item #63942
