About This Item

New Haven: Yale University Press. Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket. 1977. First Edition. Hardcover. 0300020945 . A first edition of this collection of letters and diary entries by Albert and Jennie Barnitz. Albert was a Captain in the U.S. Army, serving under George Armstrong Custer in the Indian Wars of the American West. His wife Jennie attempted to stay near her new husband and lived with him at Fort Riley, Kansas. However, she was forced to return to her parents home in Cleveland when conflicts with Indians made life out west too dangerous for her. These letters document the exciting times the couple shared. Severely wounded at the Battle of Washita River in 1868, Albert retired as a colonel in 1870. Includes a handful of black & white photos. --- In brown cloth-covered boards with black spine titling. Jacket features cameo images of Albert and Jennie to front panel. --- An excellent copy: clean, tightly-bound and unmarked. Unclipped dust jacket with sunning to spine, otherwise bright and wrapped in removable mylar protector.; Tall Octavo - 9 to 10 in. tall; xiv, 302 pages .
