We have procured an impressive collection of antique books entitled, The War of the Rebellion, detailing almost every part of the Civil War. The collection was written as a result of a congressional law that was signed by Abraham Lincoln to be THE definitive source for the Civil War. In total, the series was 128 volumes of which we have 125 at the time of writing.
Officially titled, The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, the collection is often referred to as the Official Records by the scholars who use them as source material.
The writing was organized into 4 parts with Part 1 being the biggest.
Series 1: Military operations; contains battle reports from the Union and Confederate armies (50+ volumes)
Series 2: Prisoners of War and political prisoners (8 volumes)
Series 3: Miscellaneous Union correspondence, orders, and reports (5 volumes)
Series 4: Miscellaneous Confederate correspondence, orders, and reports (4 volumes)
We will be bringing parts of the collection to the shop slowly. If you need/want to see what we have or know when they will hit the shop, just let us know. We will be happy to let you have a preview!
