Thru a weirdness, that link for the "Official Records of the Rebellion" came out wrong. It's

No luck with me; my only useful suggestion (apart from the even more obvious one of tracking both spellings, McLean seeming to be the commoner one, for example the one his wife's diary was published under) is for you to get in touch with the USMA Librarian, but you've almost certainly thought of that already.
