About This Item

FINE, in 'as new' condition. (Harrisburg, PA: Archive Society, 1995). Facsimile reprint of original 1903 Scribner's edition. Finely bound in gray leatherette with stamped decorations, gilt inlays and gilt edges. Marbled endpages. Sewn binding. Three full-page photographic portraits. Index, 474 pages. ~~~ This edition OUT OF PRINT. from the Introduction: "For many years I have been urged to place on record my reminiscences of the war between the States. In undertaking the task now, it is not my purpose to attempt a comprehensive description of that great struggle, nor an elaborate analysis of the momentous interests and issues involved. The time may not have arrived for a full and fair history of that most interesting period in the Republic's life. The man capable of writing it with entire justice to both sides is perhaps yet unborn. He may appear, however, at a future day, fully equipped for the great work. If endowed with the requisite breadth and clearness of view, with inflexible mental integrity and absolute freedom from all bias, he will produce the most instructive and thrilling record in the world's deathless annals, and cannot fail to make a contribution of measureless value to the American people and to the cause of free government throughout the world ... I have also recorded in this volume a large number of those characteristic and thrilling incidents which illustrate a unique and hitherto unwritten phase of the war, the story of which should not be lost, because it is luminous with the noblest lessons. Many of these incidents came under my own observation"--
