1857 leather bound travel style American Bible Society Bible. Stenciled on the front and back inside cover "Horatio Barton". The front stencil makes it look it could pass for Horatio Britton or Bratton. The back cover only looks like Bratton. There is only one Horatio Bratton on any census records or anything else.He was a member of the 194th Pennsylvania infantry. They were stationed in Maryland in 1864.
There are no regimental service manuscript or stenciling. It is an 1857 travel Bible though.
Likely went off to war with private Bratton. About 5 by 3 1/2 inches in size. About 1 1/2 inches thick. No major damage or tears to the pages. Some light staining and toning.
Small frayed off spot on the tongue as seen, but very stable. Feel free to ask questions.
