The Army of the Potomac was the main army of the Union forces in the Eastern Theater of the American Civil War. After he was banned from serving the French navy, François d'Orléans, Prince de Joinville (1818-1900) offered his services to American Union forces, where he served as staff to Major General George B. McClellan of the Army of the Potomac. In this tract, the Prince de Joinville records his observations on the military techniques of this army. (Wikipedia).
