Click on an image to enlarge
Here is the 1861 revised edition of the 1861 U.S. Army Regulations tactics manual. On the title page it states that it was printed by the Philadelphia firm of J.G.L. Brown. This is the classic style of Army regulations that were used throughout the Civil War by union officers. It has 559 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 all of the pages appear to be present and accounted for. On the first pages it has a soldier's name that carried the book. In fine old brown ink it reads "John Roberts Capt. 3d Infty N.J. Vols" in two places. The records show that Roberts enlisted on May 22nd 1861 as a 1st Lieutenant. He served until August 5th 1863 when he resigned. During that time the 3rd New Jersey saw action at Munson's Hill, Manassas, Gaines Mill, Antietam and Fredericksburg. This is a nice piece of Civil War history that is priced for less than what a US belt buckle cells for these days.
