    Remarkable 303 Issue Set of the Confederate Veteran Magazine, the property of Confederate Surgeon Major Samuel Houston Caldwell. Starting with the first edition printed in January 1893, this collection of the Confederate Veteran magazine continues through the 1930s missing few, if any, issues. The personal property of Confederate Surgeon Major Samuel Houston Caldwell until 1917, and thereafter the property of his wife, this collection is an amazing archive of the magazine which existed, as stated on the front page of the first edition, "In the Interest of Confederate Veterans and Kindred Topics".

    The only perceptible damage other than being well read over the many years, appears to be the first and last page of the first edition which have been photocopied to include with this archive. These magazines are an historical goldmine of information concerning the stories of the Confederate veterans of the Civil War, the tributes paid to them as they pass away, and of the battles in which they fought. Dr. Caldwell must have enjoyed these editions and treasured them to have kept every copy, more than just magazines but a reminder of his service to the Confederacy he passed down to later generations.
