For sale is a marvelously well preserved New Testament carried by a Civil War soldier during his career. Bound in original dark blue morocco, in the haversack style popular at the time, especially with the troops.

64mo, about 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 1/2. Bound in original dark blue morocco leather. Some wear to head, tail, and edges. Covers a little rubbed, the leather is very well preserved.

The strap of the cover flap is just a touch weak, but no tears. Paper is crisp and bright, imprint is good. Gilt page edges in excellent shape. Only writing is an ownership inscription from the soldier who owned it, dated July 1862. Served in the 124th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company A (1862-64), and was transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps, 151st Company, 2nd Battalion (1864).

He enlisted on August 14, 1862 (two weeks after he got this Bible), and served with them until February of 1864. Foote would have seen action at Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Missionary Ridge before he was transferred to the VRC while in Nashville, Tennessee.
