Regulations and Instructions For The FIELD SERVICE OF THE U.S. CAVALRY IN TIME OF WAR. BY GEO. B. McCLELLAN, Major General U.S. Army……Fully Illustrated.  PHILADELPHIA:  J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1861.  Hardcover blue cloth, 216 pages, 6 fold out plates of formations, “saber hooked up” and bits, 8 plates of bugle calls, and other illustration within the text.  Addendum of military titles offered by Lippincott.

Inscribed on the flyleaf, “Lieut. E.B. Eddy / Co. “G” 3rd Regt. / Minnesota Volunteers / Belmont, Ky.”  

Ezra B. Eddy, enlisted as a 1st Lieutenant on Nov. 6, 1861, and mustered in service in Company “G,” 3rd Minnesota Volunteer Infantry.  He resigned his commission on July 10, 1863, at Murfreesboro, TN.  I have photographed the reasons for his resignation, found on CW data.

The book has some water staining to the front cover; other than that, this manual saw hardly any use, showing light wear on the corners (minimal); tight and clean throughout.

A hard manual to find; currently no copies for sale on the internet.
