Original edition printed in 1927. Hardbound, 512 pages with illustrations throughout. A common enough book, we've owned a number of them through the years. What sets this particular volume apart is first, it's overall condition, and secondly, and most importantly, the original owners portrait appears on the inside of the cover, with his 1927 dated autograph written on the page next to it. For anyone familiar with this book it is simply a delight, color plates, hundreds of black and white photographs, with a chronological summary of the war's battles and events, day by day. The full color image of the veteran is as bright and vivid as the day it was placed here, showing him in his GAR uniform, wearing his membership badge and a reunion medal. Printed in gilt at the bottom of the photo is Co. F. 72 Pa.. On the opposite page is his handwritten autograph, done in a shaky hand, William Jackaway, 1927. Mr. Jackaway was born in Philadelphia in 1840, and joined the 72nd Pennsylvania (Philadelphia Fire Zouaves) on August 10th 1861, and was honorably discharged on August 24 1864. Accompanying the book are several pages of information regarding the 72nd Pa in the war, and William Jackaway's part in it. Among the printed sheets is a newspaper article from 1938 regarding the Blue & Gray reunion to be held in Gettysburg that year. Mr. Jackaway, then 97 years old, planned on attending, and was quoted in the article as saying that he witnessed and helped repel Pickets Charge on July 3rd 1863. He called himself a lucky man for surviving the war unscathed. Mr. Jackaway passed in 1944 at the age of 103.
