About this Item

Minor edge and corner wear, lightly scuffed and scratched, spotting to the front and back covers and the spine, corners are very gently bumped and rubbed, overall a very clean first edition! Blue cloth with a pastedown title on the spine. Extremely rare and out-of-print! 446 very clean, unmarked and uncreased historical pages wonderfully illustrated in black and white! 4 wonderful fold-out maps fully intact. Very very scarce and hard-to-find! "The scope of the present writing has been an attempt to cover every event worth recording in the long history of the Regiment of which the facts could be discovered, and in such a manner that it would give a real picture, not only of the events themselves, but of the times in which they were enacted. This involved a considerable setting of United States history and sketches of contemporary life, which it is believed makes a more lucid narrative for the general reader. The burning of Washington, including the War Department, in 1814, destroyed a large part of the Army records before that date, and there are many periods where even local histories are so vague and general that it is difficult to definitely determine the facts. Where there is doubt or even only strong inference that the regiment participated in an event it is so stated."----from the Preface by F. B. S. Headquarters Second Infantry, Fort Wayne, Michigan, October, 1930. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 023699
