The Last Campaign

Leavenworth, KS: Journal of the U.S. Cavalry Association. Circa 1911. Offprint. Wraps. VG+ / None. Item #622

Gilpin, a clerk in Upton's HQ, wrote an article for the Cavalry Association by the same title in 1908. The article is found in Dornbusch under Third Iowa Cavalry. This article was then reprinted into this book.

This copy seems to be inscribed and signed by Major General James Harrison Wilson, Commander of the Campaign. Looks so real, but isn't!! Strange story: I purchased this book many years ago and it was a part of my library as a special item due to the inscription/signature. By accident an identical copy was offered on Ebay for $850. I contacted the seller with a picture and proof we had like copies, not the original. The seller withdrew the book but later offered it for $350 which they got!!

Still a valuable account of operations by General Wilson at the very close of the War in Alabama and Georgia.

VERY RARE!!

Price: $85.00
