Albert Array Array من عند Mundi Jahangirpur, Uttar Pradesh, الهند
This is one book in my large collection about imposters. The book was entertaining. The author's writing style is not stilted or academic. Like many books of its kind, it is very poorly documented. In his notes the author claims that he "did not want to be a party to reporting fiction as fact, or to help to develop a mythology about women in the Civil War" and then proceeds to do exactly that. There is only a selected bibliography. There are notes in the back of the book for each chapter but, if you check the author's sources, background historical information about battles or local history come from well-researched sources but specific facts about individual women tend to come from sources even more poorly documented than this book. In his notes on Loreta Janeta Velazquez he admits that the evidence is circumstantial. He also states in the notes that when he did check primary sources he found major discrepancies.
Not nearly as good as A Fan's Note, but hey, it's Exley.
