  • The Bivouac and the Battlefield, Or, Campaign Sketches in Virginia and Maryland

    This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work.

We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. ...
