The Battle of Prairie Grove, December 7, 1862 [cover and caption title].

NP: n.p., nd [ca. 1915]. First separate edition, "taken from the Southern Bivouac" (published in the September, 1885, issue). 16mo. 38 pp. In an effort to impede the Union army's advance into Arkansas, General T.C. Hindman met its troops in battle. Jones, attached to the Army of Tennessee at the time of the battle, consulted the reports available for the battle and here reconstructs the action from the confusing and contradictory writings of the leading participants; the fight lasted all day, but the Confederates withdrew when night fell. Not in Nevins, Nicholson, or Dornbusch (the latter noting the "Southern Bivouac" printing). OCLC locates one copy (Arkansas-Fayetteville); we sold a third copy about ten years ago. Original printed gray wrappers, stapled. Very good. (2492). Item #55931
