Butternut and Blue, MD. White joined a New Hampshire company of the 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters in November 1861. This regiment was one of the elite units of the Army of the Potomac, being composed of expert marksmen. White served in every battle in which the regiment was engaged except for South Mountain and Antietam. These memoirs, written after the war, provide a vivid picture of army life and battle action. His recall of detail suggests that these reminiscences were based on diaries he kept throughout the war. The book is loaded with personal insights, humor, personalities, equipage and uniforms. Very good copy of the first edition in a very good dust jacket protected by mylar. Only 500 copies of the first edition printed. 373 pages. Bookseller Inventory #
