It looks like John Surratt Jr. but the 'stache isn't right! (but maybe it is) Wink

The edition I own of this book has a small card in it which says, "The photograph appearing on page 128 should have been placed on page 163."

"The photograph appearing on page 163 should have been placed on page 128."

"Captions are correct as placed."

What is the name of the book I am talking about?

     Going from the last book you've mentioned, I'm going to say "This One Mad Act".

Excellent logic, Joe, but that's not it, either.

Hint #1: Mr. John C. Brennan is mentioned in the 'acknowledgements' section of the book.

Nope.

Hint #2: Joe's logic is correct -  it is a book I've mentioned recently on the forum.

I think I am out of clues. The answer is William Tidwell's April '65: Confederate Covert Action in the American Civil War.

I found a review on the internet in which the reviewer noted the same picture mix-up I mentioned in the question, so I am thinking perhaps all the books were published that way.
