Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.8in. x 1.2in.A unique edition of a young Union cavalry troopers Civil War recollections There have been several editions of Stanton Allens book, (previously published under the titles A Boy Trooper With Sheridan and Down in Dixie), recounting his experiences as a boy trooper in the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry during the American Civil War. There are some differences of content, in terms of illustrations and text, between earlier editions. This is such an outstanding book, in every way, that the Leonaur editors have gathered together all the material from previously published editions and carefully combined it to create this definitive volume for modern readers to enjoy.

Allens recollections of his military experiences naturally make gripping reading , but the inclusion of a large number of first rate illustrations to illuminate his account elevate this memoir from the excellent to the truly exceptional. While Allens book is interesting enough on its own, this edition has been enhanced by the inclusion of a concise history of the service of the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry Volunteers during the Civil War by the regiments historian, Benjamin W. Crowninshield.

Synopsis: A unique edition of a young Union cavalry trooper's Civil War recollections

There have been several editions of Stanton Allen's book, (previously published under the titles 'A Boy Trooper With Sheridan' and 'Down in Dixie'), recounting his experiences as a 'boy trooper' in the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry during the American Civil War. There are some differences of content, in terms of illustrations and text, between earlier editions. This is such an outstanding book, in every way, that the Leonaur editors have gathered together all the material from previously published editions and carefully combined it to create this definitive volume for modern readers to enjoy. Young Allen was just 12 years old when the Civil War between the states erupted, yet he was destined to serve on campaign and battlefield from the Battle of the Wilderness of 1864 to Lee's final surrender at Appomattox. Allen's recollections of his military experiences naturally make gripping reading , but the inclusion of a large number of first rate illustrations to illuminate his account elevate this memoir from the excellent to the truly exceptional. While Allen's book is interesting enough on its own, this edition has been enhanced by the inclusion of a concise history of the service of the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry Volunteers during the Civil War by the regiment's historian, Benjamin W. Crowninshield.
