I have an 1891, fourth edition, of the Personal Memoirs of Gen'l W.T. Sherman, which I am ashamed to say that I haven't read — yet. This book was given to me by my aunt, who is a Clewell.

Most interestingly is inscribed in pencil on the frontice page "William Clewell." According to my regimental of the 153rd Pennsylvania, a William Clewell of Co. I was wounded at Gettysburg.

If he's one and the same, wonder why he had a book on Sherman and not, say, on Howard? Bet I can guess...
