About this Item

400 pp, preface, 22 chapters, killed and wounded. Reprint of the [1871], Kelly, Piet & Co. Edition, 1956. "The 35th Battalion of Virginia Cavalry, also known as White's Battalion, White's Rebels and the Comanches, was a Confederate cavalry unit during the American Civil War raised by Elijah V. White in Loudoun County, Virginia in the winter of 1861-62. The battalion was initially raised as border guards along the Potomac River below Harpers Ferry but were ultimately mustered into regular service as part of the Laurel Brigade. Despite this, they continued to play a conspicuous role in the ongoing partisan warfare in Louduon throughout the war. The battalion was particularly notable during the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign, when it played a prominent role in the Battle of Brandy Station and subsequently conducted a series of raids on Union-held railroads and defensive positions in Maryland and Pennsylvania. The 35th was the first Confederate unit to enter Gettysburg, Pennsylvania." Historical museum plate on front pastedown, with light browning to endpapers, else, Fine. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Brown cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 001515
