Wrappers professionally repaired, else a very good or better copy. HOWES L-546. Dornbusch II, 2597. "The special pleadings of an erratic Confederate irregular"--Nevins I, p.238. Beall and his men consisted a group of Confederate navy irregulars operating in the Chesapeake Bay area much as Mosby operated in the Valley. Beall and his men made their way to Canada to mount a raid in Lake Erie to free Confederate prisoners held on Johnson's Island. They were unsuccessful, but able to seize and sink several boats in the lake. Beall was captured by Union authorities and accused of "acting in the two fold capacity of a spy and guerilla." After his capture, President Davis issued a proclamation stating that the Confederate government assumed "the responsibility of answering for the acts and conduct of its officer engaged in said expedition." The U.S. military commission in the trial proceedings found Beall guilty, and he was hanged on 24 February 1865. Bookseller Inventory # 67892
