1884 Veterans YANKEE & REBEL Civil War CONFEDERATE Soldier GAR Camp ROBERT E LEE
A HISTORY OF A FRATERNAL VISIT PAID BY. This sale is for an original 1884 FIRST EDITION of "'YANK' AND'REB' " by Comrade C. YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!! Published in 1884, this is a history of the trip taken by Union veterans of New Jersey, to Richmond, Virginia, to visit Confederate veterans and Union veterans of that city. Nearly all Civil War books describe the events leading up to it, the political issues which stoked its continuance, and the ramifications that persisted after it. Not this Civil War book! It was the author's earnest desire to tell a simple story about a pleasurable trip. The author himself was on this journey, among others who all thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
You will not find philosophy of war and politics here, but rather a refreshingly positive story from this era of our nation's shared history. Our amiable author presents here that as each side was made up of citizens of one common country, that each must rejoice in the glory of the other, offering admiration for the heroism displayed on the battle field, a uniquely enjoyable perspective. P ublished in 1884 , this book is in GOOD CONDITION!!! For its age and especially to be 136 YEARS OLD!!! The front endpapers and the title page have been tape reinforced at the hinge.
There are NO tears, and NO stray in-text markings. This book measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" and is complete with a brief 124 pages. GET IT WHILE YOU CAN!! Please see our other books too!
