What Confederate leader became the principal compiler of Confederate Records for the massive War of Northern Aggression? The Official Records of the Union and confederate Armies, published by the US government after the war?

A: General Marcus J. Wright a Memphis attorney and veteran of Shiloh, Perryville, and Chickamauga, spent almost 50 years after the war working 7 days a week collecting Confederate records for the War in an attempt to preserve an accurate chronicle of the war.

thats a life time for some folks. can you imagine the methods of retriving the records. if more southern folks had that kind of dedication the truth could not be kept hidden from the general public.
