To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
This was done with the loss of but eight mules and nine barges, which latter went ashore at near Fortress Monroe in a gale, the cargoes, however, being saved. Well may Mr. Tucker claim for this extraor dinary achievement that, "for economy and celerity of movement, this expedition is with out a parallel on record. " While General McClellan was superintend ing and carrying out this colossal movement he was not, however, suffered to be entirely his own master, nor was he delivered from the tormen...t of the Presidential plan of campaign. His own conduct, during this trying time, is admirably depicted by an observer whose competency and whose candor no man of intelligence and of character will be likely to dispute. The Prince de Joinville, an edu cated and accomplished military man, whose sole interest in the events passing before his eyes, beyond that of a deep and cordial sym pathy with the cause of the Union, is that of a student of the political and military history 36 of his times, thus describes the position and Hie bearing of General McClellan, during the months of February and March, 1862.
