About this Item

ELLIS, Edward S. Uncrowning a King: A Tale of King Philip's War. Original pictorial cloth. New York: New Amsterdam Book Company, 1896. First edition. This copy has the ownership signature of Edward P. Alexander on the front free endpaper. Alexander (1835-1910) was born in Washington, Georgia, and graduated West Point in 1857. Prior to the war, he invented a new method of army signaling based on his study of Albert J. Myer's system. The Alexander "wig-wag" technique became standard for both armies in the Civil War. Jefferson Davis appointed Alexander to Beauregard's staff as engineer and chief of the signal service. He distinguished himself at First Manassas afterwards becoming chief of ordnance for the Army of Northern Virginia. He fought in all of the Army's major engagements and played a pivotal role at Fredericksburg. He surrendered with Lee at Appomattox. After the war he served as government director of the Union Pacific Railroad and president of the Georgia Railroad & Banking Company. He wrote several books including Military Memoirs of a Confederate (1907). Bookseller Inventory # 60924
