This story of Charley King, a 12-year-old drummer boy from Pennsylvania, who is caught up in the excitement and patriotism during the early stages of the Civil War, is based on an actual person. Mustered into Company F of the Pennsylvania 49th Volunteers in September 1861, his journey begins with the defense of Washington as part of Major General George McClellan's Army of the Potomac. Charley is involved in the transport of that huge army down the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk, and then, by land, the grueling progression of the Peninsula Campaign and its disappointing retreat, eventually arriving at the Battle of Antietam. Publisher: White Mane Kids.

Brothers at War

Brothers at War

$8.95
More Info
The Henry Brothers are opposites: Rob, dark and intense, is shy and a perfectionist, while redheaded Jamie is an easygoing, sociable fellow. They have quarreled and competed with each other since they were small boys. It is therefore not surprising that when Rob becomes a Confederate reenactor, Jamie shows up as a Union drummer boy. Also at the reenactment of the Battle of Antietam is the object of their latest competition: the lovely Sarah Singleton. Dressed in Civil War-era clothes, the three pose for an old style photograph, only to mysteriously travel back in time to the actual Antietam campaign in September, 1862. This time the brothers really are at war! Publisher: White Mane Publishing. Paperback, 154 pages. Measures 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.4". Weighs 7.4 oz.
Burton Drawings at Harpers Ferry: The Emergence of 19th Century Drafting Practice at the U.S. Armories

Burton Drawings at Harpers Ferry: The Emergence of 19th Century Drafting Practice at the U.S. Armories

$20.00
More Info
James Henry Burtonspent ten eventful years at the Harpers Ferry Armory. During this tenure, he perfected an elongated bullet for the regulation .58-caliber rifle-musket—commonly called the Minié bullet—helped test and perfect new lock mechanisms, barrel rifling, and machinery. Burton’s drawings range from simple sketches used to flesh out components of operating mechanisms to dimensioned, hand-tinted drawings of firearm components and complex machinery. According to John Symington, Supt. of the Harpers Ferry Armory, Burton’s “management was so satisfactory, and his ingenuity in devising, draughting and perfecting tools and machines so marked, as to cause me at once to select him as a fit person to fill the position of Master Armorer…” The Burton Drawings at Harpers Ferry focuses on the remarkable achievements of James H. Burton during his 10-year tenure at the Harpers Ferry Armory. Burton’s notes, sketches, and detailed drawings teach us a great deal about the emergence of 19th century drafting practice and the evolution of firearm technology during the decade preceding the civil war. Author: David T. Gilbert. Publisher: Harpers Ferry Park Association. Paperback, 64 pages. Measures 8.5" x 8.5" x 0.2". Weighs 5.8 oz.
Burying the Dead But Not the Past

Burying the Dead But Not the Past

$37.50
More Info
Immediately after the Civil War, white women across the South organized to retrieve the remains of Confederate soldiers. In Virginia alone, these Ladies' Memorial Associations (LMAs) relocated and reinterred the remains of more than 72,000 soldiers. Challenging the notion that southern white women were peripheral to the Lost Cause movement until the 1890s, Caroline Janney restores these women as the earliest creators and purveyors of Confederate tradition. Long before national groups such as the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and the United Daughters of the Confederacy were established, Janney shows, local LMAs were earning sympathy for defeated Confederates. Her exploration introduces new ways in which gender played a vital role in shaping the politics, culture, and society of the late nineteenth-century South. Publisher: University of North Carolina Press. Paperback, 280 Pages. Measures 9.1" x 6.1" x 0.75" . Weighs 15.4 oz.
