Buehler (1825-1896) was a Gettysburg native and graduate of Gettysburg College, who worked as a printer and newspaper editor before the war. At the outbreak of the war he was one of Pennsylvania’s first defenders who rushed to Washington. He was commissioned as Captain of Co. E, 2nd Pennsylvania Volunteers on April 20, 1861, and was honorably mustered out July 26, 1861. He then gained a commission as Major in the 87th PA and was promoted to Colonel of the 165th PA on Dec. 16, 1862. The 165th was a militia regiment recruited for volunteer service mostly in Adams County and was sent to serve with the 7th Corps at Suffolk, Virginia, where it took part in the Blackwater raid, the fighting at Deserted House, the Siege of Suffolk and a raid on the Weldon Railroad. The regiment returned to Adams County and was mustered out at Gettysburg on July 28, 1863. Buehler stayed in Gettysburg and was a coal and lumber merchant after the war and an agent for the Adams Express Company. He died in Gettysburg in 1896 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery.

Butterfield’s manual was an effort to provide practical advice for officers and men new to field service and to standardize practices in the army for conducting marches, laying out camps, the duties of various officers, provost marshals, etc. In addition to instructions for dress parades, etc., he included guidelines for maintaining the health of the troops and practical instructions for officers on picket duty. This copy is in very good condition, bound in brown cloth with gilt blind stamping. There is just minor chipping to the edges. Buehler has signed it on the flyleaf as “C.H. Buehler / 165th Reg PM” and on the inside cover with his address: “Gettysburg, / Pa.”  [sr]
