183 Seward, Janet W. Personal experiences of the Civil War
Worcester, Ma F. S. Blanchard & Co. 1899 1166553507 / 9781166553500 First Edition; First Printing Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
This is the original 1899 printing. Janet Seward was the wife of Brigadier General Willam Henry Seward, Jr. who's father was the Governor of New York. Brig. General Seward was also an American Banker from Auburn, N.Y. He left banking on August 22, 1862 to join the Union Army in the U.S. Civil War. "Seward was appointed lieutenant colonel of New York's 138th Infantry Regiment, which became the 9th New York Heavy Artillery Regiment in December 1862. The regiment served in the defenses of Washington, D.C. until it was converted back to an infantry regiment and sent to the Army of the Potomac because of the losses sustained by that army in the Overland Campaign.[2] After fighting at the Battle of Cold Harbor, Seward was appointed colonel of the regiment on June 10, 1864. A few weeks after Seward's promotion to colonel, his regiment was sent north to meet the threat to Washington, D.C. posed by Confederate Lieutenant General Jubal Early's Valley Campaigns of 1864. Seward was slightly wounded in his arm and suffered a broken leg when his horse fell on him after the horse was shot at the Battle of Monocacy on July 9, 1864. He was promoted to brigadier general on September 13, 1864 and in January 1865 was assigned to command a brigade in the Department of West Virginia, which he did until April 1865. He was thereafter known within his family as "The General". Seward commanded the 3rd Division for 6 days after Confederate partisan rangers captured Brigadier General George Crook on February 20, 1865." (Wikipedia) The contents of this booklet was written by Mrs. Seward for "The Fortnightly" a a Woman's Literary Club in Auburn, N.Y. Ianuary 20, 1898.

Red cloth cover on book that is in excellent condition. Light browning to endpapers otherwise clean and tight. Dust has chipping at top edge amd a 1/2 inch chip out of the bottom of back dust. Dust is now in Brodart cover. This is a wartime (WWII) production book with normal Wartime stamp on copyright page. Stated First edition. "Kate was an incurable manager, from childhood, when she took her charming but drunken father firmly in hand, to her final capitulation, after years of matrimony, to the second chance with the husband she had worshipped -- and loved -- and married -- and bossed for years. The situations Kate found at hand demanded a guiding spirit -- so we share her urge to direct events; and Kate does it well enough, except when her own interests are involved. And then her poisonous -- and too, too obvious (one would think) neighbor -- steals the candy right from under her nose. This is the story of a life-long duel between Kate and bad Lalia; the setting is just the sort of Mid-West town that Tarkington knows best." (Kirkus Review) Newton Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 - May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Booth Tarkington was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, the son of John S. Tarkington and Elizabeth Booth Tarkington. He was named after his maternal uncle Newton Booth, then the governor of California. Tarkington was an unabashed Midwestern regionalist and set much of his fiction in his native Indiana. In 1902, he served one term in the Indiana House of Representatives as a Republican. ; 7.90 X 5.60 X 1 inches; 359 pages
