AMONG THE CAMPS
"Among The Camps" or "Young Peoples Stories of the War", is a well illustrated easy to read book that will delight young and old. It was written by Thomas Nelson Page and published in 1918 so there is no PC filter.
This sequel to Two Little Confederates followed the first book when originally serialized in the Harpers Young People Magazine of 1888. More exciting tales of children caught up in the tragic difficulties and dangers of the War Between The States.
Author Thomas Nelson Page's stories from the war are full of themes of courage, sacrifice, honor, strategy, even forgiveness, and other realities of life as children and soldiers are thrown together and learn to see how Christian kindness and goodwill apply even in the worst of times. Highly authentic historical fiction from a man who lived his boyhood during the times of the war.
The stories are, A captured Santa Claus. Kittykin and the part she played in the war, Nancy Pansy and Jack and Jake.
163 pages of wonderful reading. This book can be quite expensive depending on it's condition. This copy although sound and tight is priced to sell due the covers. Both have been bent and show a crease. There front covers shows some dirt but nothing else. It is a very sound copy that you can handle without fear of damage. That means you can let those young ones (The people it was originally intened for) read it at their leasure.
I think it is underpriced and it will only increase in value. If you do not have a book collection this would be a great start.

THE IMPENDING CRISIS OF THE SOUTH $89.00
Ahhh good old Ben, the hero of New Orleans. 1892 First edition. I am not a book grader. A hard core book grader would likely grade this copy poor to fair. As for it's actual use, it is a readable copy that does have to be handled gently. The front binding is tight, the rear loose but attached. The pages are tight.

From a historians point of view it's in good shape. You can read it but I would use a cradle due to the loose back cover. It is easily repaired using library tape. I recommend repair as I do not feel this book valuable enough to have it rebound nor do I suspect it ever will be.

YANKEE FROM OLYMPUS, JUSTICE HOLMES
Justice Holmes and his family by Catherine D. Bowen, printed in 1944. This book is in very good condition and contains 475 pages.
I know you may not care that much about Justice Holmes and his family but the first half of this book contends with pre war and war date material. Anyone who is interested in the 20 Mass. will find this book interesting as there are 50 pages of Holmes Jr.'s war experiences. Ball's Bluff, Seven Days, Antietam, Wilderness, that's some pretty ruff duty!
