About this Item

72pp. First edition, and the second copy of this we have seen. Original pictorial wraps, rear wrap torn at top, affecting two words of advertisement. Front wrap soiled. Sewn as issued. If not the very first, this has to be among the initial accounts of the fall of Sumter. The name of the author is written in pencil on title page, ‘Miss A. Fletcher,’ under the printed text ‘By One Of The Company.’ Auction records list ‘A. Fletcher’ as the author, with one referring to a single copy that had that name penciled on the title page. I suspect this is that copy. Whoever she was, the author was obviously present during the siege, as she includes anecdote and detail that only an eyewitness could possess.
