    Clothing Return Book for Companies D and E of the 83rd Pennsylvania Vol. Inf. for the period August 1861 to June 1864. 11" X 16", maroon 1/4 leather with gilt stampings. Each page with complete detailed ink script record of individual soldier's clothing and equipment issue through the period, over 300 pages. The 83rd Penna. was one of the Army of the Potomac's hardest fought regiments, losing 282 men killed and mortally wounded during their term of service. The regiment suffered heavily during the 2d day at Gettysburg amidst the fierce fighting at Little Round Top, with many soldier's entries bearing the notation "Killed at Battle of Gettysburg, Pa. July 2nd/63", along with notations of soldiers killed at many other actions where the 83rd was engaged. Fine sound condition. just some minor scuffing on the binding, edge wear. A remarkable insight into one of the war's most gallant regiments.
