"Old Abe": The Live War-Eagle of Wisconsin that Served a Three Year Campaign in the Great Rebellion.

Madison, WI: Atwood & Culver, 1876. 8vo. 128 pp. Green cloth with gilt eagle vignette on front cover; light internal soiling, wanting front free end-paper, very light shelf-wear, at least very good. This copy appears to be in a contemporary [publisher's?] cloth binding, though most copies were issued in wrappers and as such is in much better condition than usually found. Item #12495

Sixth edition. Although the book relates the tale of the eagle captured by O-ge-mah-we-ge-zhig, and who accompanied the Eighth Wisconsin Regiment through three years of the Civil War, the book also contains significant details on regimental battles in Mississippi and Tennessee.

Price: $200.00
