History of the Tennessee Regimental CSA
Item #: NEW-0017215

Click image to enlarge
This may be the most important Tennessee Regimental history, and certainly I have referred to it on many occasions while researching. As can be seen in the scans, the book is in very poor condition and attempts to restore it by someone made it worse.  Iím going to let the scans speak for themselves. Needless to say the binding is very loose. The title is History of the Twentieth Tennessee Regiment Volunteer Infantry, C.S.A. Nashville, TN: Published by The Publication Committee, Consisting of W.J. McMurray, M.D., Deering J. Roberts, M.D., and Ralph J. Neal, 1904. 1st ed. 520 pp.  portraits. Orig. cloth. HOWES M-173. First Editions of this book are offered at the lowest $300 up to $600
