Henry Eby served as a soldier in Company C in the 7th Illinois Cavalry during the Civil War. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1841. In 1850 his family moved to Mendota, Illinois.
Mr. Eby participated in many Civil War battles including Stones River and Chickamauga. He was captured and spent time in several prison camps. He contracted smallpox, but survived and he escaped on January 1864 only to be recaptured 35 miles from he Union lines. In March 1864, as a part of a prisoner exchange, he and 400 Union soldiers were released. In October of 1864, near the end of his enlistment, he returned to his home near Mendota, Illinois.
This is a first edition book that tells an accurate story of an enlisted man during the Civil War. It was published by Mr. Eby in 1910. It is 284 pages long, hard cover, and in excellent condition, except the front hinge is weak.
The last picture in the sequence is of Mr. Eby on his horse. It does not appear in this book.
