Reflecting upon the Civil War...
Item # 596781
August 5, 1865
ARMY & NAVY JOURNAL, New York, Aug. 5, 1865 Obviously a military-themed publication so a nice title for Civil War content, even for reports from shortly after the end of the war.
The front page report, in part, reflects upon events of just one year prior noting: "...This week a year ago our columns were laden to repletion with accounts of the Burnside Mine, or the tremendous Hood and Sherman battles around Atlanta, & of the astonishing &, it must be owned, to us extremely discreditable raid of Early & his light column up to the Monumental City...". Other reports inside include: "Observations On the North" "Army & navy Personal" "Organization for a Regiment" "Speech of General Sherman at St. Louis" which takes over a full page; "Size of the Army" "The Indians" "General McClellan on the Results of the War" "Letter from General Lee to Mosby" and more.
Sixteen pages, nice condition.
