About this Item

Original edition. Subtitle: A History of Its Part and Place in the War for the Union, with an Outline of Causes of War and Its Results to Our Country. Rear cover missing. Front cover and spine detached but present. 516 pages, plus unnumbered pages of name index, of which the pages after Timothy M. Mason are missing. Portrait photos of many officers. Also photos of battle sites. A late Civil War source book, late because the unit's members, though they often discussed, at their reunions, the need for a history of the unit, it just didn't get organized enough until 1903. A fascinating work. The second paragraph in the introduction reads thusly: "The First Maine Heavy Artillery, formerly the 18th Maine Infantry, made for itself a record it did not seek. It stands recorded as the Regiment that lost more men, killed and wounded in battle, and the largest percentage of losses in battle, and it also lost a larger number of men in a single battle than any regiment in the United States service in any war." In bad condition but it seems to be all there, and can be read, up to the Mason family name in the roster index. Bookseller Inventory # 7192
