1 Albaugh, William A. , Iii and, Simmons, Edward N. Confederate Arms.
Harrisburg, Pa. , Stackpole Books 1957 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Poor dust jacket 
Xviii, 278 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, frayed otherwise fine. 8 by 11 inches. From the dust jacket: ""It was almost a hundred years ago that the Confederate soldier marched to the end of his hallowed road, leaving behind on the forsaken fields a gun here, a word there, fragments of the past, to remind us of his devotion to duty and to the land he loved. These tools of war are not common or ordinary equipment, and for good reason. Because of the lack of steel, the Southern soldier's gun barrel was made of iron. Due to the scarceness of iron, his gun frame was made of brass. And so it was, on down the line. The hard-pressed Confederate Ordnance Bureau substituted whatever materials they could secure for the 'impossible' in order to obtain some metal for their production of guns, swords, canteens, cannon, ammunition and the countless other items needed to keep their army in the field. The hands that made these crude but effective arms and accoutrement have long since turned to dust, but men have come to look with favor and admiration on these strange and curiously forged implements of war. . . .. In this volume, the authors have prepared an extensive guide to almost everything the Confederate soldier used, carried, handled or treasured in his long march from Manassas to Appomattox.
