Reviewer Daniel E. Cone writes that Allie Stuart Povall departs from traditional biographies of Civil War generals by orienting Union Warriors at Sunset around their postwar lives. Union Warriors at Sunset, Cone concludes, is "an easy, casual read" that "serves well for those seeking to know more about the postbellum lives of Civil War generals, without having to flip to the back parts of an assortment of two, three, or four-hundred page biographical tomes."
