The book is from that military library, being book #78. This copy was also shelved/read at Fort Barry Calif headquarters, and Benicia Barracks (Point Benicia, Sausalito, Marin Cty). || In the aftermath of the American Civial war this series of 3 books (here being Vol 2) is remembered as: " a collection of humorous "letters" written by a fictional character to a relation in the north during the Civil War. They were published regularly in the New York Mercury Sunday newspaper for the four years of the war. In the letters, Newell poked fun at northern generals, politicians, and had hard things to say about southerners. Although Newell was rarely serious, . the letters reflected the bitterness and frustration of many northerners at the time." A USA Civil War memento with special & unique US military/ California connections. [B234]. Bookseller Inventory # 011999
