About this Item

12mo. Original black blind-embossed cloth with new black calf spine and paper label. xii, 412pp, 4pp ads. Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. Mild edgewear, with corners rounded, else tight and attractive and internally near fine. Nice, tight second printing of this G.I.'s narrative, which James I. Robertson Jr. describes: "Treats of the Eastern campaigns through Antietam; much conversation and unsupported statements make this work highly suspect as a reliable source." Alonzo F. Hill was mustered into Company D of the Eighth Pennsylvania Reserves on June 21, 1861, was promoted to corporal on July 1, 1861, then to sergeant on May 1, 1862; on September 17, 1862 he was wounded at Antietam and was discharged in December 1862. This copy is most unusual in that Hill has signed the front flyleaf in black ink near the top, adding "Regards" above. NEVINS I, 104. Bookseller Inventory # 37643
