ANECDOTES, POETRY AND INCIDENTS OF THE WAR: NORTH AND SOUTH.
Collected and Arranged by Frank Moore. Published in 1882 by The Arundel Print, New York. 9.5 x 6.5 decorated cloth hardcover edition.
Condition: VERY GOOD ANTIQUE CONDITION. Handsome exterior as shown in photo. Text is clean and complete. No torn, loose or missing pages. Owner ink-stamp on first endpaper.Nice example of this rare Civil War title. Frank Moore became renowned after publishing his Diary of the Revolution, a vast collection of period newspaper items, editorials, etc. Published during the Revolutionary War forgotten pieces of history that most people would never have had access to otherwise. The great American Civil War is similarly chronicled in ANECDOTES, POETRY AND INCIDENTS OF THE WAR: NORTH AND SOUTH.
Here, Moore has compiled a goldmine of rare and forgotten news items from newspapers, magazines and journals published in both the North and South during the Civil War years -- so you get to see the war from both sides. This book is a goldmine of Civil War information all the tragedy, trauma, and trivia, exactly as it appeared in the daily newspapers, etc. With eyewitness accounts, recollections of famous generals, military leaders and battles, slices of camp life, the horrors of battle, stories of individual heroes, thrilling accounts of escapes from behind enemy lines, patriotic expressions in verse, and much, much more. In the Introduction, Moore writes. In the preparation of this volume, it has been the design of the editor to preserve the most notable anecdotes and incidents of the late war, and such songs, ballads and other pieces of versification as are worthy of perpetuation.The tragic incidents, humorous episodes, and brilliant and heroic adventures of the conflict, all lie buried in the columns of inaccessible newspapers; and it is not strange, therefore, that the editor should almost daily, for years past, have received letters requesting a reissue of the work. The present edition is published in response to that demand. Handsomely bound, this is the kind of gem that historians and genealogists covet. A collection of experiences and accounts, in many instances related by the very men who lived them. And almost all have slipped through the cracks of time, now virtually forgotten.
Who knows, maybe one of the accounts in this book can lay to rest some long-unanswered question in the history of your town? Maybe it can fill in a century-old gap in your family genealogy? There are many reasons why this book is so important, least of all to preserve the memory of the forgotten men and women of our nation's bloodiest conflict. In order to give you the most accurate description of this old and rare volume, I have provided some helpful details below. - and who routinely use books like this for specific research -- I have personally created a detailed description of the book's contents.At the bottom of this page, you can see some photos of the book.
