He was commissioned a Brevet Captain by Stonewall Jackson, and continued his service under Generals Ewell and Early after Jackson's death. At the war's end he retired a Major and returned to teaching at the school he founded.
Hotchkiss mapped the Shenandoah Valley for the first time, and documented the Valley Campaign, the Northern Virginia Campaign (including Cedar Mountain, the Second Battle of Bull Run, and Chantilly), the Maryland Campaign (including Harpers Ferry and Antietam), the Battle of Fredericksburg, and the Battle of Chancellorsville.
Other than his "here at the moment" comments, Hotchkiss' journal is not a history book. He doesn't describe battle strategies, decision making of officers, battle planning, or discussion of the personalities of the officers.
This is an 'on-the-spot' narrative. If you are looking for a historical textbook, this is not your book.
