Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1900. First. Hard Bound. VG+. / None. Item #641
The subjects of this book have been debated since the last gun was fired. An impossible task, Livermore used a very detailed study to reach his conclusions. His figures have been used by many historians in their works. For years the figure of 650,000 was used as the total casualties during the War. Today there are historians who believe 750,000 is closer to the actual figure for both sides.
This was Captain Albert Maxfield’s, 11th Maine Infantry, copy. An accompanying sheet has a picture of him and much detailed info submitted by family members about his service. Funny, he was captured the last day of the War, 4/9/1865 and released in May 1865. His address on the ffep indicates a NYC address, the bio says he lived there after the War and died at the ripe old age of 90. Nice attribution.
