DISASTER, STRUGGLE, TRIUMPH. THE ADVENTURES OF 1000 "BOYS IN BLUE" FROM AUGUST, 1862, TO JUNE, 1865
first editionHard Cover
by Arabella M. Willson
Albany, NY: Argus Company, 1870. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. In the opinion of Civil War historian Bud Robertson, this is a "potpourri of inadequate and sometimes erratic material" which "substantiates anew that women do not make good military historians" [Nevins I, 179]. While it is tempting to ask rhetorically "Did he really say that?",why don't we just leave it alone and conclude that Robertson is not afraid to be politically incorrect. This copy is rebacked, with wear to the original spine which is laid down. This book is Robertson's own copy, with his bookplate on the pastedown. (Nevins I, 179). Very Good binding.
