Steve W. Sylvia, Michael J. O'Donnell." From the preface: "The purpose of this book is twofold. First, to trace the history of relic collecting over the past century, and second, to impart further evidence of the validity of the relic as a historical document. The collecting of relics began during the war. ~ Only recently have historians manifested a willingness to treat the artifact as a document. Conversely, the antiquarian has lately expressed an inclination toward utilizing the tools of the historian in documenting his artifacts. Both of these progressive attitudes have combined to provide a steady flow of authoritative works on diverse military subjects such as weapons, projectiles, accoutrements, and the like.
