Covers quite good, gilt bright, text very clean, a very few pages roughly opened. Dornbusch I, page 89. Colton was in the 15th Pennsylvania cavalry; captured in Kentucky in late 1862, he was imprisoned in Richmond (Libby Prison? ) for a month before being exchanged. He returned to his unit and saw action until 1865. Colton had a solid education before his military service, and his correspondence is uncommonly rich, extensive, and exceptionally literate. Strangely enough WorldCat only locates a single copy of this book. The rest must be buried in Civil War collector's libraries.
