Some Recollections of the Civil War [cover title], by a Private in the 40th Ga. Regiment, C.S.A.

Dalton, GA: A.J. Showalter Co., printers and binders, 1902. First edition (Dornbusch describes a 1911 edition printed at Dalton's Daily Argus). 8vo. 15 pp. Bogle fought with the 40th in the western theater, as a part of Stovall's Brigade in the Army of Tennessee, participating in the Vicksburg campaign and the drive from Chattanooga to Atlanta where he was captured on the Chattahoochie, spending the rest of the war in prison at Camp Chase. A number of battles are recalled, with mentions of specific troop movements, messmates and other members of the regiment, wounds, deaths, marches, etc. Though brief and written thirty-five years after the event, it is a thoroughly compelling narrative. Signed in type at the end of the introduction and at the end of the text "Jos. Bogle." Caption title: "Some Recollection of the 40th Georgia Regiment, C.S.A., in the Civil War." Rare and apparently unrecorded. Not in Nevins, Dornbusch, Nicholson, or Broadfoot. Not in the De Renne catalogue. Not recorded on OCLC. Original printed light green wrappers (soiled, circle stain on front wrapper, spine somewhat eroded). Ink note "40th Ga Reg inf" at head of front wrapper; still a good copy of an apparently unrecorded first edition of this Civil War memoir. (1350). Item #54485
