Robert E. Lee’s Bad Old Man Lays it on the Line
Jubal Early’s Autobiographical Sketch and Narrative of the War Between the States, in 1st Edition.
Jubal Early was a ranking commander in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia throughout most of the Civil War. His book covers his service to Lee and the Confederacy from Bull Run through Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and his own campaigns on Washington and in the Shenandoah Valley in 1864.
Never at a loss for words, Early’s autobiography is necessary for any collection of the Confederacy, and especially of the Army of Northern Virginia.
An excellent account, published posthumously, of military activities by the prominent, and irascible, Confederate general, corps commander, and unreconstructed keeper of “The Lost Cause.”
Original gilt-stamped maroon cloth, with top edge gilt; lightly edge worn; horizontal scratch across the spine; else very good. Previous owner’s stamp of A Rutherfoord Davenport.
