He was well known for his written attacks on William Tecumseh Sherman and his soldiers, which reintroduced into the public debate the issue of Sherman's sanity, and also was controversial for its publishing of important information pertaining to the Vicksburg Campaign. He was acquitted on spy charges but found guilty of disobeying orders.
He is also the author of an autobiographical text, "Camp-Fire and Cotton-Field: Southern Adventure in Time of War, Life with the Union Armies, and Residence on a Louisiana Plantation."
