SKETCH OF THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG, FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 3d, 1863. (Reprint) Sketch by Edwin Forbes, found in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Famous Leaders and Battle Scenes of the Civil War, 1896. "In [this] illustration may be studied the struggle on Friday morning. On the Federal right the battle raged furiously from early dawn. Ewell was determined to advance from the rifle-pits he had taken the night before, and Slocum was equally resolute to recover them. Geary and Birney here met the first assault firmly. For six hours the struggle was desperate on both sides. The Confederates seemed to laugh at death, and again and again charged through the smoke of artillery with shouts that swelled above the uproar. Wheaton's Brigade, of the Sixth, was hurried up to the rescue, and the Federal line which had been forced back for a moment, again advanced; more troops were pushed forward, artillery brought up on a gallop, and posted so as to enfilade the hostile ranks. At eleven o'clock the enemy gave it up, and his shattered bleeding battalions fell back in despair." 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 on heavy 70# paper, suitable for framing

Compiled and written by Carlene Bouwman, Pat Collins, and Patti Jo Lambert, 2011.
"As early as 1905, entrepreneurs in the City of Butler [Pennsylvania] were looking to the future. Long before it became fashionable to breeze around town in a new Chevrolet, these citizens took a chance and invested in a new industry--the manufacturing of automobiles.
This book covers 36 years of Butler's automotive golden age. During this time, Butler entrepreneurs manufactured six unique vehicles. They faced many challenges--including the Great Depression. One of the Butler-made vehicles--the Bantam Reconnaissance Car--became the most important American vehicle ever built"--the Jeep. (From Introduction.)
There is much more that could be written about this fascinating part of Butler's history. But this abbreviated compilation of facts and photos is an excellent introduction to the 70th anniversary of the Jeep.

Our Price: $10.00

BUSINESS DIRECTORY OF PITHOLE CITY, 1865-1866. Reprinted 2006 by Oil Region Alliance, Intro by Neil McElwee. The first directory of this area, it lists approximately 1,200 individuals and businesses in Pithole, and includes business advertisements of the time. It also contains listings for three smaller communities nearby: Balltown, Dawson Center and Prather City. In late 1865, Pithole was a hastily built boomtown of boarding houses, hotels, saloons, transient men and horses. Pithole was riding high on the crest of a great wave of oil production. In late 1865, when the editor of this directory compiled his listings, he could not have imagined the field's imminent collapse not long after, one that happened so quickly and completely. Fold-out map included. 61 pages, 5 x 8 Softbound.
