MEMOIRS OF RHODE ISLAND OFFICERS WHO WERE ENGAGED IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY DURING THE GREAT REBELLION OF THE SOUTH
Illustrated with thirty-four portraits
by JOHN RUSSELL BARTLETT, Secretary of State of the State of Rhode Island
SIDNEY S. RIDER & BROTHER
I have not seen another copy available for sale. Written by the frontiersman J.R.BARTLETT, it documents biographies of many Rhode Island officers who fought in the Civil War, from general Burnside to the junior lieutenants. In addition to the memoirs, there are 34 unique engraved portraits.
This is an indispensable volume for the Rhode Island Civil War collector or a researcher. Some of the pages are still uncut. The boards were stabilized by a professional book conservator.
