Nurse and Spy in the Union Army; The Adventures and Experiences of a Woman in Hospitals, Camps, and Battle-Fields. S. Emma E. Edmonds.
Hartford, CT: W. S. Williams & Co. 1865. Presumed First printing thus. Hardcover. [2], 384, [2] pages. Frontis. Illustrations. Boards worn, top and bottom edges of spine threadbare, foxing to text. Sarah Emma Edmonds (December 1841 – September 5, 1898), was a Canadian-born woman who is known for serving as a man with the Union Army during the American Civil War. A purported master of disguise, Edmonds exploits were described in the bestselling Nurse, Soldier, and Spy. In 1992, she was inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame. During the Civil War, on May 25, 1861, she enlisted in Company F of the 2nd Michigan Infantry, also known as the Flint Union Greys. On her second try, she disguised herself as a man named "Franklin Flint Thompson," the middle name possibly after the city she volunteered in, Flint, Michigan. She felt that it was her duty to serve her country and was truly patriotic towards her new country. Extensive physical examinations were not required for enlistment at the time, and she was not discovered. She at first served as a male field nurse, participating in several campaigns under General McClellan, including the First and Second Battle of Bull Run, Antietam, the Peninsula Campaign, Vicksburg, Fredericksburg, and others.

The Story of Shiloh. Otto Eisenschiml.
Chicago: The Civil War Round Table, 1946. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 89, [9] pages. Illustrations. Map. Notes. Bibliography. Inscribed and dated by the author on fep to Colonel Clifford L. Sayre 'fellow chemist and fellow historian'. Small spine tear. Otto Eisenschiml (June 16, 1880 – December 7, 1963) was an Austrian-born chemist and executive in the oil industry, and author. He may be best known for his provocative 1937 book on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in which he proposed that a member of Lincoln's Cabinet orchestrated the plot to kill the president. Eisenschiml was well published within the chemical and oil industries, authoring several articles in trade journals and magazines on technical aspects of the business. He became a student of American history, with a particular fascination for the Abraham Lincoln assassination. He began researching the murder in 1928, but was not satisfied with the prevailing account that John Wilkes Booth was the mastermind of the plot. In 1937, his signature work, Why was Lincoln Murdered?, was published.
