By Bvt. Maj. Gen. EMORY UPTON, United States Army
SUBMITTED BY MR. TILLMAN.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES,
March 30 (calendar day March 31), 1916. Resolved, That there be printed one thousand additional copies of the publication entitled “The Military Policy of the United States," by Brevet Major General Emory Upton, United States Army (fourth impression), for the use of the Senate Document Room. Attest:
JAMES M. BAKER,
In preparing General Upton's manuscript for publication the editors have found it necessary to eliminate certain portions extraneous to the author's subject as well as the numerous repetitions which an unrevised manuscript is almost certain to contain. It is particularly unfortunate that the author's 'untimely death in the midst of his literary work should have prevented the completion of his treatise on the Nation's military policy to include the entire Rebellion, as well as to give the chapters already written the benefit of his personal revision.
A chapter on the military laws of Virginia, another on Confederate military appropriations, and a third on the military policy of Rome, have been omitted entire, but nothing has been excluded or eliminated from the published work which, in the judgment of the editors, would not have been cheerfully sanctioned by the distinguished author could he have been consulted in the matter.
In the fourth impression of this work, printed from the original forms, it has not been practicable to attempt any general revision. A few minor errors to which attention has been called since the first impression have, however, been corrected. — M. I. D., January, 1907.
