Published in 1987 by Morningside House of Dayton, OH, this is a reprint of Archibald Gracie's original book published in 1911 entitled The Truth About Chickamauga. It is a hardcover volume with gold gilt lettering on the spine and has 462 numbers pages and includes a frontis illustration of General George H. Thomas and several fold out maps throughout. The author posits in his preface that the battle of Chickamauga in September of 1863 was perhaps more decisive than the Battle of Gettysburg, and goes on to dispel what he deemed falsehoods. Gracie was also one of the survivors of the Titanic and from the wealthy family that built New York City's famous Gracie mansion. He was also the son of a Confederate general that led Gracie's brigade at the Battle of Chickamauga. Therefore, he may have been somewhat biased in his writing, however, this is an interesting read for the Civil War buff and would be a great addition to your library or collection.
Condition is very good, with clean tight pages and minimal wear to the cover, except for some price sticker residue on the front. It is a beautifully custom hand bound book in C grade cloth and on Howard Permalife paper.
