THE CIVIL WAR IN SONG AND STORY - by Frank Moore 1889
NY - 546 pages + index. VERY INTERESTING READING!!!!
Anecdotes, poetry and incidents of the War. Large format loaded
with interesting stories. I never gave this book much thought until
I sat down and started reading it. Now I don't know why I didn't
read it before. Good condition although printed on that typical
1880's paper & binding is loose.

Linthicum 1904 Chicago 473 pages with many photos &

1904 printing date). Very good condition.

114 year old book!! Barely a mar on the cover and only a loose
frontipiece but still intact. Famous regiment of Gen. George
Armstrong Custer this regimental obviously (by the number
of pages) doesn't go into great detail but does cover
movements and anecdotes from battles along with the

U.S. ARMY MEDICAL MANUAL - 1863 - "Manual of Instruction for
Enlisting and Discharging Soldiers" by Roberts Bartholow, A.M.,
M.D. Phil. 1863 Manual is in near excellent condition. Medical
manuals are difficult to obtain but this is the first one of these I've
seen. Just a few small holes in the spine and a minor waterstain on
the last few pages and inside the rear cover. Good tight binding and
looks to have barely been used.

W.W. Goldsborough 1900 Baltimore - 397 pgs (including ads in
back). Beautiful edition of this pricy (cataloged out at $500. 5
years ago). Leather (some of the leather raising along edges
but not bad) with gold page edges, binding very tight. Covers
the 1st & 2nd Md. Inf., 1st & 2nd Md. Cav. & the 1st - 4th Md.
