      Do you know when he wrote that book, before or after 'armies'? In
      'Armies' he calls the Vicksburg campaign 'Napoleonic'.

      Many authors CVs start with broad swaths of subject matter that
      gradually drill in on one or two interesting, or under-researched,
      topics. Donald and Simpson spring to mind.

        He was also a general in the war of 1812, Secretary of War under
        Jackson, Secretary of State under Buchanan [until he resigned during
        the secession crisis] and the Democratic Party's Presidential
        Candidate in 1848 (lost to Taylor), in addition to a bunch of other
