This may be the most important Tennessee Regimental history, and certainly I have referred to it on many occasions while researching.

Super rare little pamphlet which last time I heard went for $750.  The condition is terrible as far as the wraps go and there is a lengthwise fold.  Someone also tore off the bottom of the tittle page and the other pages have deliberate long light pencil strokes on them. Attempts were made to erase the pencil markings.  I'm speculating that some durn Yankee defaced this book which is an eye account of the Battle of Franklin and its aftermath.  Eleven pages and ads of Franklin businesses in the front and back.
