Here is the 1863 dated revised edition of the 1861 U.S. Army Regulations tactics manual. On the title page it states that it was printed by the Government Printing Office in Washington, DC. This is the classic style of Army regulations that were used throughout the Civil War by union officers. It has 592 pages detailing everything from uniform regulations to instructions for the quartermaster's Department. It has many charts and graphs. The overall size of the book measures 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches in overall size. It has the original blue cover with the gold gilding on the spine. As you can see the book has some wear but the majority of the pages appear to be present and accounted for. What makes this one special is that on the inside cover it has the name of the man that carried and owned the book. It has the name and regimental marking of Vinson Williams. The record show that Williams was from Bedford, Indiana and enlisted on February 13, 1865 as a captain in the 145th Indiana Infantry. He served until January 21, 1866 when he was mustered out in Georgia. During that time he was promoted to the rank of Major and then to Lieut. Col. This is a nice piece of Civil War history that we know who used the book.
