Baronett I. Lasure, was a private in Co. “H,” 33rd Pa. Vols., 4th reserve. He was mustered in June of 1861, to serve for three years. He also served in the 54th PA Infantry from January 1864 to May of 1865. He was present at the battles of Winchester, Fisher’s Hill, and Cedar Creek, etc.
The book is missing the title page., but significant for its soldier ownership I would think,
Good condition and tight, but wear on spine and covers, with most being on the former.
