Souvenir of the Annual Reunion, 1894, with Historical Sketch of the Twelfth Regiment, N. The Twelfth Regiment here is 12th New York State Militia, founded in 1847, and not to be confused with the 12th New York Volunteer Infantry, though a group of soldiers from the former regiment joined the latter unit in 1861, and in 1862 the militia provided a five-company battalion to the volunteers. So, plenty of overlap, and some veterans apparently considered the regiments to be one and the same (according to Wikipedia).
There's plenty of historical information here about the Militia and it's activities before (Astor Place Riot, Dead Rabbits Riot) and during the Civil War. There are officer profiles, a fold-out map, Civil War muster rolls, and black-and-white photos throughout. The book is in acceptable condition, with no dust jacket. The beveled blue cloth boards are a bit frayed at the spine ends and corners, show edge wear, rubbing and a few scratches, light soiling, a small stain at front center. The hinges are cracked, and a section consisting of the first five leaves is loose.
Three leaves are loose at the back. Several pages have marginal chips, there are smudges to the title page, and the map is misfolded.
