Bibliographic Details


Title: MILITARY RECORD OF LOUISIANA; INCLUDING ...

Publisher: New Orleans: L. Graham & Co.

Publication Date: 1875

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Description:

64, 30, 40, [12], 259pp. Mounted albumen portraits of veterans. First edition. With ownership signature of Confederate Brig. Gen. Joseph Lancaster Brent. Before his promotion, Brent was an ordnance officer under Confederate Lt. Gen. Richard Taylor and is perhaps best known for sinking the Union ironclad ‘Indianola’ in the Red River. Original black calf with gilt borders. New spine matching the old one which was in tatters when I got this book. Signed by Brent at head of title page. Three textual references written by him on front fixed endpaper. There is also one marginal manuscript note by Brent. These were custom books, made by the printer to the order the buyer, usually a veteran, who specified the photos to be included, normally comrades from Confederate service. Brent’s copy contains three, one of Cicero Allen of Co. A, Crescent Rifles; one of Confederate Brig. Gen. Allen Thomas; and a third that I cannot identify. By far the best record of Louisiana in the Civil War, so sweeping and deep are the listings, rosters and accounts of even the most obscure French-speaking units. Also included is Bartlett’s excellent Washington Artillery regimental history, ‘A Soldier’s Story Of The War.’ Brent, born in Maryland, was lawyer in California when the war broke out. He served briefly on the Peninsula under John B. Magruder, then transferred to Richard Taylor’s command as ordnance officer. He was promoted to brigadier general in 1864. NEVINS I, 55: ‘An expansion on the author’s memoirs (referring to Bartlett). Contains much data on the Washington Artillery and other Louisiana units.’ COULTER, TRAVELS IN THE CONFEDERATE STATES 18. DORNBUSCH II, 409. HOWES B-206 (aa). NICHOLSON p.60. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-17238238353
