It was reported here about some recent purchases of items on Michigan in the Civil War from years ago, only recently obtained. The latest is the Twenty-fourth Michigan (yes, that's how it's portrayed on the 1962 first edition), author Donald L. Smith, a retired vet and Detroit police officer. Great dust jacket front cover with a line of soldiers approaching an unseen enemy under a frayed US flag. Can't beat those old designs, they are so nostalgic. Being a detailed study of this Iron Brigade unit, it's a well-worth-it purchase.
