EXTREMELY RARE UNION REGIMENTAL HISTORY.

The unit manned six guns and fought in the Western Theater in all the major battles there.

This dealer has seen it one other time in 25 years. That copy was missing pages and offered for $200. It is more than a history, looks like it was a reunion piece also. Notes in the book indicate that the official records were lost in the Chicago fire and more in a members house fire. Therefore, the history is brief, but comprehensive enough to know what and where things were done.

Price: $295.00
