Volume 2, No. 9. Published in New York by Charles B. Richardson.

The United States Service Magazine was more than just a military journal. It published not only articles on military and naval affairs as were required for the basis of a service periodical during the Civil War, but fiction, poetry, stories of the war, and articles on artistic and literary subjects. Civil War scholars will find of particular value the profiles of Union military leaders (with accompanying engravings) and the meticulous records of dismissals, commissions, troop movements, captured flags and other official intelligence. Its most important literary feature was Louisa May Alcott’s serial, “Love and Loyalty,” which ran from July to December (skipping October) in 1864.

Magazine measures 5 ½” by 8 ½”. Text contains pages 225- 320, plus ads. Binding is tight. Spine is worn, pages have scattered spotting and have yellowed with age.  [sl]
