New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1926. First edition. Hardcover. Item #38652
Early in the war Missouri was captured by the Union though its Confederate battalions remained in the South, separated from loved ones and family. Grimes risked his life to deliver mail between these Southern soldiers and their relatives in Missouri. 216 pages with several illustrations. Bound in dark blue cloth. Neat owners' signatures to front and rear endpapers. A very good copy.
