Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an original Civil War tactics manual. This is volume 1 of the rifle and light infantry tactics manual that was written just before the war by a brevet Lieutenant Colonel W.J. Hardee. When he initially wrote the book, he was in the U.S. Army but would later go along to be one of the most important generals in the Confederacy. This manual is printed in 1861 in Memphis, Tennessee by the Southern Publishing House of Hutton & Freligh on Second Street. As you can see this one is heavily used but still retains some of the original pullout diagrams. There is damage to several of the pages which adds to the character of the book. This volume which states that it has "Two Volumes in One" has to do with the instruction of "School of the Soldier and Company". The front cover had detached and has been put back in place using archival tape. The outside cover measures 8 inches by 5-3/4ths inches in overall size and still retains the original paper label. A wonderful piece of Civil War Confederate tactics history.
