Typical small pocket testament published by The American Bible Society in 1857. The exterior shows heavy wear and surface abrasions on the edges. Covers are holding tight but the spine has lost its covering material. Binding is good.

First blank page has been inked with a soldier’s stencil and reads “PATRICK DUNN CO. H 69TH N.Y.V.”

Dunn was born in Ireland and when he came to the United States is not known. He was 37 years old when he enlisted as a private in Company H, 69th New York Infantry on October 1, 1861.

Records show that he was first sent to Epiphany General Hospital in Washington, D.C. before being transferred to Baltimore where he was in Patterson Park General Hospital and West’s Building General Hospital from which he was discharged for wounds on December 31, 1862.
