    Description

    Johnson's Island Confederate P.O.W. Autograph Book, over 150 pp., 5.25" x 7.75", tooled leather covers. An exceptionally fine collection that opens on page 5 with the following dedication rendered in high Victorian calligraphy: "To Miss Diana Park, Whose numerous and liberal acts of kindness have, during my incarceration in a Military Prison, relieved the ennui and depression attendant upon my deprivation of liberty This book, with sentiments of gratitude and esteem is respectfully presented. M.P. Tucker Capt 55th Ga Reg Greenville Georgia." Page 7 gives the book's title as, "Autographs of Confederate Officers confined in U.S. Military Prison Johnsons Island Ohio June 7, 1864." This collection consists of 129 signatures, four of which are penned by generals. The generals signing are Isaac Trimble, J. J. Archer, John Wesley Frazer and William N. R. Beall. Most of the autographs contain rank, unit and hometown information. Many of the signers augment this information with the place and date of their capture. Prominent actions listed are Chickamauga, Gettysburg and Port Hudson. Of special interest are the many officers from Kentucky's Bluegrass region who were captured during John Hunt Morgan's famed 1863 raid into Ohio. The covers are a bit worn, however the binding remains tight. Overall fine condition.
