Civil War Battle Flags Of the Union Army and Order of Battle

Edited by C. McKeever

From the publisher:
A publication of great and lasting historical significance, the complete organizational charts of the Union Army, direct from the Quartermaster General in 1862, are combined with the designating battle flags (1861-1865), from the headquarters of Generals Grant and Sherman to each individual division and brigade. Originally produced in 1888 by Burk & McFetridge Printers, Lithographers and Publishers in Philadelphia, this work has become so rare that only the most astute researchers were aware of its existence. Printed in six colors (with silver and gold inks), these stunning flags and charts are essential for each Civil War enthusiast's library.

From CWBN:
Barnes & Noble shows this title as being released tomorrow, August 28 and the issuer as Diane Publishing. Neither Amazon nor the presumed publisher Diane have any information about this book. Reissued in 1997 by the Knickerbocker Press, new and used copies can be had here and here. The adventurous buyer can also try ordering from B&N: it may be that the Diane attribution is an error or the year 2007 is a typo.
