Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The first edition of this work.

Complete in three volumes.

In the publisher's grey cloth variant. 

An incredibly detailed account of the Battle of Gettysburg, reporting on the movements of the forces, and commemorating those fallen. Many of the plates show monuments to the losses during the battle, which was the bloodiest of the Civil War, with roughly 50,000 casualties. 

The 1863 Battle of Gettysburg is considered to be the turning point of the American Civil War; the battle was won by the Unions, ending the aspirations of the Confederacy to establish an independent nation.

Volume II is illustrated with two folding maps to the pocket to the front paste down, thirty-seven plates, and in-text illustrations.

Written by Colonel William F. Fox, who fought in the American Civil War with the 107th New York Volunteers.
