3 Albaugh, William A., III. Tyler, Texas, C.S.A.: The Story of the Confederate States Ordnance Works at Tyler, Texas, 1861 - 1865.
Wilmington, NC: Broadfoot Publishing Company, (1993). 
Octavo, mustard cloth (hardcover), xi + 235 pp. Fine (As New) in a Near-Fine, mylar protected dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. Here, for the first time, is the full and complete story of a large-scale Confederate ordnance operation, given us not through the third person, or by a veteran long after the war's end, ut by the person most concerned in the activity ... its commanding officer, and written at the time this history was being made. Through diligent research, the Day Book of the Tyler, Texas, C. S. Ordnance Works has been uncovered in its original manuscript form, which gives a graphic day-by-day account of activities in the plant. Here parade in tragic (and sometimes amusing) vividness the personalities of those times. Herein are also entered the countless problems, large and small, that so sorely tried the souls of those involved. The manner in which seemingly insurmountable difficulties were faced and overcome makes for fascinating reading. Skillfully blended in with the above, the editor has inseted his own comments and conclusions, and throughout the story run timely excerpts from various Northern and Southern newspapers of the times. While these items and articles are in the main concerned with little-known but interesting occurences of the great conflict, still through their adroit handling can be traced the tide of the war and the fortunes of the South itself. In short this is THE story of the Confederate States ORdnance west of the Mississippi River during those long-ago days when the red and starry blue-crossed flag of Dixie flew from the capital of every State south of the Potomac River. This is the stoyr of how desperate men took antiquated gun barrels and substituting ingenuity for machinery, courage for material, fashioned some odd 3,000 rifles and muskets to arm the all too thin gray line of the Confederate army. The fact that of these 3000 arms only 4 complete specimens remain today adds that air of mystery that is loved by all. Fo rthe many intereseted in the Civil War, the Confederacy, the State of Texas, or gun collecting, this volume is powerful and exciting reading.

19 Bakeless, Kathereine Little. Glory Hallelujah: The Story of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Drawings by Edward Shenton.
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, (1944). First Edition. 
Octavo, gray illustrated cloth (hardcover), uncut, 100 pp. Near-Fine, in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: This story is the result of a truly excited piece of research. The author fitted together -- as a detective fits together evidence in solving a mystery -- the assorted people and incidents that went into the writing and popularizing of that great American hymn born in Civil War days -- Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!. The book is full of important and unforgettable pictures: of lovable T. Bringham Bishop, the minstrelman who made the tune; of Julia Ward Howe who wrote the words; of heroic Chaplain McCabe, who sang the song in Libby Prison; of Abraham Lincoln, who found it an inspiration; of the boy Willie Morgan, who marched away to war to the tune of it. Boys and girls, and older readers too, will enjoy this wonderful American story, here assembled for the first time and told with rare charm and flavor.
