Fort DeRussey... General Burnside on General Grant...
Item # 678790
April 02, 1864
ARMY & NAVY JOURNAL, New York, April 2, 1864 As noted in the masthead this was the: "Gazette of The Regular & Volunteer Forces" and as such is replete with military news of all sorts.
Most of the front page deals with reports on the capture of Fort De Russey, near the Red River. Other items inside include: "The Staff" "Life Boats for Vessels of War" "The Re-organization of the Army" "The United States Marine Corps" "Our System of Recruiting" "General Burnside on General Grant" "Army & Navy Personal" "The Fall of Vicksburg" and much more.
Sixteen pages, 10 by 14 1/2 inches, some spotting & foxing to the front page, otherwise quite nice.
