Lamentablemente este ejemplar en específico ya no está disponible. A continuación, le mostramos una lista de copias similares de HISTORY OF BATTLE-FLAG DAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1879 y Anonymous.

Descripción:

290 pages; Original owner's name on ffep (John Tweedy) and two pages noting James Brattle Burbank (first as Major in the Official Order of the Day for the Parade and later as General with the Twentieth Infantry). Otherwise the text is clean and tight in original royal blue cloth binding with gilt lettering at spine and gilt decoration (image of tattered U.S. and Connecticut flags) on front cover. Some wear at spine and corners, still a nice example of this scarce book. John Tweedy was the son-in-law of Brigadier General James Brattle Burbank, U.S.A., who was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1838 and died at Walter Reed Hospital in 1928, a veteran of both the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. During the American Civil War, Burbank began his military service as First Lieutenant in the 20th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry in November 1862 and was promoted to Brevet Major by March 1863 for his gallant conduct in the battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia. He then resigned from the Volunteers and enlisted in the U.S. Army serving in the 3rd U. S. Artillery for the remainder of the War. In the 1880s and 1890s he was an officer with the 5th U.S. Artillery and later the Artillery Corps. The tattered flags that had flown over Connecticut's troops during the Civil War were preserved by the State originally in the Arsenal in 1865 and then transferred to special display cases in the Capitol on September 17, 1879 - Battle Flag Day. This book describes the history of the first Battle Flag Day in Connecticut with details of those that participated in and attended the ceremonies -- the finance committee, the gathering of the surviving veterans within their regimental organizations. There is a description of the decorations for the ceremonies from the Hartford Daily Times, a description of the preserved battle flags themselves, the history of the military actions that took place under those flags, the stories of the regiments and their men. The volume finishes with comments from the press, commemorative poetry and sermons and a description of Antietam and the role of Connecticut's troops in that battle. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. N° de ref. de la librería
