"Outstanding in its level of expertise and judgment . . ." -- American Bookman
by William W. Heartsill
Wilmington: Broadfoot Publishing Company, 1988. 336 pages, 8 1/2 x 11.
Probably the most unique book in Confederate history. This day-by-day account of a Texas private was originally hand-printed by its author from his war diary with photos of his old company pasted in.
Laid into each volume is a sheet from the original manuscript, both sides written entirely in Heartsill's hand. Bound by hand using select goatskin imported from England and fine Italian bookcloth. Cover stamped in gold. Extra illustrated with an oversized tipped-in photograph of Captain Sam Richardson in his leapard-skin britches, plus three Civil War maps by Heartsill never before published. All original photographs reproduced. "This is a gem among Confederate narratives." -- The Civil War in Books
