Kilpatrick and Our Cavalry

Full title: "Kilpatrick and Our Cavalry: Comprising a Sketch of the Life of General Kilpatrick, with an Account of the Cavalry Raids, Engagements and Operations Under his Command, From the Beginning of the Rebellion to the Surrender of Johnston." Kilpatrick was an officer in the Union Army during the American Civil War, achieving the rank of brevet major general. Nicknamed "Kilcavalry" (or "Kill-Cavalry") for using tactics in battle that were considered as reckless, Kilpatrick was both praised for the victories he achieved, and despised by southerners whose homes and towns he devastated. Illustrated with 12 wood-engraved plates from designs by Waud; steel-engraved frontispiece portrait of Kilpatrick. 5"x7.5" with 245 pages. Hurst reprint of the original publication by W.J. Widdleton and Co. Closed tears along outside edge of pages 26 and 28. Pages are browned and brittle. Covers show edgewear and soil, some fading.
