Near Fine. No Dust Jacket. Book. 8vo-over 7¾-9¾" tall. Though considered a low key individual, John Gibbon led troops in many of the major engagements of the Army of the Potomac, including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg (where he was wounded), the Overland Campaign, and the siege of Petersburg. His commentary on the training of volunteers and of the morale and straggling that sometimes occurred is interesting. He also provides glimpses of George Meade, U.S. Grant, and Winfield Scott Hancock. Book Condition: Near Fine; former owner's bookplate inside front cover, no other internal markings. No dust jacket as issued.
