Click on an image to enlarge
here is a cool book from a hard fighting regiment. This is an original Civil War manual. This book is entitled "The Company Clerk" by Captain August V. Kautz. It was printed by Lippencott of Philadelphia and is dated 1864 on the title page. It measures 7-1/4th inches by 4-3/4ths inches in size. It covers all areas of what a Company Clerk would be required to do. What makes this one extra special is the inscription on the inside cover of the book. It has the beautiful ink inscription of the owner of the book. It states "Lieut. Norris Crossman / Co. I. 56" Regt. N.Y.V.". It has the location of Beaufort, South Carolina as well as the date of December 10th 1863. Crossman served with the 56th New York Infantry. The 56th saw tons of service during the Civil War including Yorktown, Seven Pines and Malvern Hill. The records show that Crossman enlisted on September 17th 1861 and served throughout the War and mustered out on October 17th 1865. He rose from the rank of Private all the way to Captain. The book itself has a pleasing look with the original gold detail on the cover that includes the title as well as the beautiful Union eagle perched on the shield. A brief history of Crossman's service and that of the regiment will accompany the book. What a cool piece of history.
