6 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.

7 Barefoot, Daniel W. General Robert F. Hoke: Lee's Modest Warrior.
Winston-Salem, North Carolina: John F. Blair, Publisher, (1996). First Edition. 
Signed and inscribed by the author. Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), xvii + 452 pp. Fine, in a Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Neglected by modern historians, Robert F. Hoke was a towering figure in his time. Mustered into Confederate service as a second lieutenant in April 1861, he was a major within five months, a lieutenant colonel within nine months, a colonel within sixteen months, a brigadier general within two years, and a major general within three years -- becoming, at age twenty-six, the youngest Southern officer of that rank in the Civil War. Of the 125,000 men his state contributed to the Confederate cause, it was Hoke who was called “the North Carolina Lee” and “the most distinguished solider of North Carolina.” In a face-to-face meeting after the war, U. S. Grant admired that Hoke had administed “the worst drubbing I ever got,” at Cold Harbor. He fought in nearly every significant battle in the Eastern theater - Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Plymouth, Petersburg, Richmond, Cold Harbor, Fort Fisher, Bentonville. He witnessed the first Confederate casualty at Bethel and provided the rear guard as Joseph E. Johnston met Sherman at Bennett Farm to arrange the last surrender. Back home, Hoke hitched his war-horse to a plow and quietly set about rebuildilng the South, a cause that later inspired him to leadership positions in industry. A private man, he declined every honor offered him by North Carolinaians, including the governorship...

11 Bernath, Stuart L. Squall Across the Atlantic: American Civil War Prize Cases and Diplomacy.
Berkeley: University of California Press, 1970. First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, x + 229 pp. Near-Fine, with tiny former-owner signature; in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Shortly after President Lincoln proclaimed a blockade of the Southern ports, the British government warned its subjects against violating either British or international law in derogation of their duty as neutrals. However, as Lord Russell reported, Englishmen would, if money were to be made by it, send supplies even to hell at the risk of burning their sails. When Union ships set out to seize the blocackade-runners, British merchantmen and American warships were sailing on a collision course, leaving a wake of vexatious diplomatic, legal, and political problems for their governments to settle. In this first comprehensive study of the Civil War prize cases, the author traces the events and their far-reaching implications on both sides of the Atlantic. He explains how the court cases offered a crucial test of the Lincoln administration's power to wage war and how the decisions affected presidential emergency powers. He points out significant disagreements within the administration and shows the complex relationship between national self-interest and international maritime law as Britain and the United States exchanged their traditional roles of belligerent and neutral...
