Front cover features splendid full page action portrait of “Colonel Grierson, Sixth Illinois Cavalry—See Page 354”.

Interior illustrations include the “Triumphal Procession of Colonel Grierson, Commanding Sixth and Seventh Illinois Cavalry, Through Baton Rouge, May 2, 1863.” Also a dramatic “action” centerfold, titled “The Men of the Northwest Will Hew Their Way to the Gulf of Mexico With Their Swords.” - a quote from General Logan In Congress, January, 1861—see Page 362”.

Exhibits evidence of having been in a bound volume at some point; some chipping and creasing along all edges as well as to interior pages.

Fine collectible. In protective sleeve, w/ white card cover. [jp/lcd]
