Volume 1, Number 18, June 13, 1863 issue. Printed and published at the U.S. Army General Hospital in West Philadelphia. Eight pages, 7 ½” x 10 ½”.

Filled with stories of general interest, songs, puzzles, and advertisements, similar to an 1860s “Reader’s Digest.” This was a good week as only a single death was listed: J.W. Barnett, Company B, 134th PA. Also there is a complete list of the sick and wounded admitted into the hospital for the week.

Condition of paper stock is good with no tears or folds. Some separation along the spine. This issue appears to have been stitched into a large volume at one time and since separated.

Front page stamped twice with black ink; an oval with “Saterlee U.S.A. Gen’l Hospital Reading Room.”

An interesting example of what the soldiers read while recuperating.  [jet]
