Hardcover with dust jacket, grey cloth with gilt spine titles, 15.5 by 23.4 cm, xi 156 pp., illus. The hardcover is near fine but for a light bump to the head of the spine and a tiny nick at the rear hinge – appears unread. The jacket is very good with light shelf wear and two tiny nicks on the rear panel. From the publisher: “The 27th Alabama Infantry served three years and four months in eight states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, and North and South Carolina. The soldiers from Northern Alabama were engaged in more than twenty battles, besides hundreds of skirmishes, some of which were almost as destructive to the small number engaged as many battles fought. The thoughts and reactions of Private J. P. Cannon, 27th Alabama Infantry, take the reader into the Civil War through his eyes. This most uncommon viewpoint takes the reader on a journey through times and places not seen by many Civil War historians. The reader will feel the emotions of this infantryman and his regiment as he traces his war years from activation to surrender.”
