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 traces of 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 old brown pencil it reads "J. R. Ashmead Co. "E" 42d Regt. Ind. Vols.". The records show that Ashmead enlisted on October 30th 1861 as a Corporal. He served until August 21st 1863 when he mustered out in Louisville, Kentucky. During that time he rose through the ranks to Captain. During that time the regiment saw action at Perryville, Stone's River, Chickamauga, Atlanta and the March to the Sea. This is a nice piece of Civil War history that is priced for less than what a US belt buckle can sell for these days.
