    This book was published in 1882 and contains recollections of all the actions of the 20th Maine Regiment of Volunteers in the Civil War, including the bivouac with the dead at Fredricksburg and the gallant defense of Little Round Top at Gettysburg. I'd like to get the binding repaired someday. No images inside, just text, but I love the tooling on the cover.

      GREAT find-- the 20th ME has a HUGE collector following (enhanced considerably after the movie Gettysburg)!

      Thanks Scott! Gettysburg is quite the film, and I enjoyed the Killer Angels novel as well.
