Service With the Sixth Wisconsin Volunteers

Marietta, OH: E.R. Alderman & Sons, 1890. 1936 Second. HB. A beautiful book! Likely as good as it gets. / No Jacket. Item #76

One of the great Union regimentals/memoirs. Howes-D-148. Nevins I-79: “The best narrative by a soldier from the Midwest,…standard source for the Eastern battles and the Iron Brigade.” Dornbusch I-W-64. Coulter 117. Union Bookshelf #25. The 6th suffered casualties unlike nearly all Union and Confederate regiments. It, and the Iron Brigade, was decimated by the start of Grant's Overland Campaign. Arguably a part of the best brigade in the Union Army - and in the entire Civil War. Dawes served as its commander.

THIS IS THE REPRINT SECOND EDITION

The first edition and the second are bound identically - royal blue cloth with gold lettering. I could not find any indication of a second publishers name anywhere.

Price: $225.00
