AB Lawrences personal survivor medal from the 1914 unveiling of the New York Memorial at Andersonville.

The box is not intact, but it is complete.A signed copy of John L. Mailes Prison Life at Andersonville. This is book #54 of only 100 copies.
This is one of the rarest Civil War books and the rarest book published on the history of Andersonville Prison. Franklin Montroses Dedication Monument Erected by the State of New York at Andersonville, Georgia, 1914. At age 71, I have made the difficult decision to sell off a portion of my collection to assist family members in need.
This collection is very difficult for me to part with, but I do hope that it finds a worthy home. Thank you and best of luck!
