Little Rock: Tunnah and Pittard, 1898. First. Hard Bound. Near Fine. / None. Item #269
Rare (and expensive) little book written by a man who knew individuals intimately in Helena, Arkansas. The author was a pre-War business partner with Cleburne and married into Hindman's family.
One of the earliest bios of the great Cleburne who was a division commander, Army of Tennessee, until he gave his life on the ramparts of the Franklin defenses in 1864. Cleburne was arguably the best division commander on either side. Very little can be found on General Hindman, also a general in the Army of Tennessee. He began as the colonel of the 2nd Arkansas but rapidly gained major general status. He suffered a major facial wound at Kennesaw, fled to Mexico following the War, returned and was assassinated in Arkansas.
