This is an original Civil War infantry tactics manual that is identified to the soldiers who carried it. The soldier who originally owned by Corporal Joseph Beardmore of the 41st NY Infantry. It is identified on the sail cloth cover, and also on the inside front cover. The 41st NY saw much action, including Bull Run, Gettysburg and Cedar Creek. On the first interior page is the name "H. Montague 10th N.Y.A.". He continues to write "This book was picked up at Winchester, Va.". Lieut. Harrison Montague served with both the NY 44th Infantry and the 10th NY Heavy Artillery, and was WIA and captured at Malvern Hill, Va. on 7/1/62. Montague served with the 10th Heavy Artillery until March of 1865. One can only surmise that Beardmore dropped this book while fighting in Virginia, and was picked up by Montague while he was fighting in Virginia. The book itself is the 1862 edition of the third volume of Infantry Tactics manual of Silas Casey. This one was printed by Van Nostrand of New York. It still has a most if not all of the pull-out diagrams and pages intact. You can tell that this book was carried and used. A brief print out on the soldiers and they service will accompany the book. It is a great piece from the War.
