Title: Anecdotes of the Civil War.
Publication Date: 1930
Book Description Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. [Powderdale, Ga.?] [ca. 1920] 11pp. First edition. Unrecorded. Original wraps, very good. Country-infused anecdotes by a veteran of the 53rd Georgia Infantry. There are but two dealing with the war: ‘How a Hungry Soldier Got His Dinner’ and ‘The Excursion Put Off.’ Others involve (truly) amusing incidents in the author’s life in rural Georgia, purely in the mainstream of 19th century humor typified by A.B. Longstreet’s ‘Georgia Scenes’ and Kittrell Warren’s ‘Ups And Downs Of Wife Hunting.’ I once had a Confederate-imprint pamphlet entitled ‘Uncle Buddy’s Gift Book For The Holidays’ (and will never have it again, wish I would) that contained Southern jokes to be told around the holiday table. Trust me, they were truly amusing. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1480279608792
