About this Item

Complete 2-volume set. Small 4to. Tan cloth with gilt lettering. 1069pp, 626pp. Near fine. A wonderfully tight and near pristine set of this facsimile of the uncommon 1903 first edition (Government Printing Office) -- a mammoth compilation that extends far before and far after the Civil War, but which Robert W. Johannsen describes as "One of the most extensive coverages of Civil War officers; contains hundreds of brief biographies, many treating of now-obscure figures." NEVINS II, 62.

About this title

Synopsis:

This is a complete list of commissioned officers of the U.S. from the organization of the Army, September 29, 1789, to the year of the list's original publication in 1903, giving the officers' full names and showing their services as cadets and all services as officers or enlisted men, either in the regular or volunteer service. The heart of the work, Part II, an alphabetical listing of the officers, runs to some 60,000 entries. Each entry contains a brief paragraph on the officer giving his state or country where born, state from which originally appointed, date of induction, rank, date of discharge, promotions, medals, battles participated in, and, in about a fifth of the entries, date of death after leaving the Army. This monumental book is actually a lot more than a listing of the officer corps, as crucial as that is. Rather, it is a handbook on the men, events, and terminology of American military life during the years of its coverage.
