ARTIFACT: This is a copy of the 1903 history entitled "The City of Newburyport in the Civil War: From 1861 to 1865" by George W. Creasey, Captain of the 35th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. This copy is inscribed by a Spanish-American War veteran who resided in Newburyport, Massachusetts while in service: Portsmouth, New Hampshire native Charles W. Howard. Howard was a Muster Sergeant Co. A, 8th Regiment Massachusetts Infantry Volunteers for two years. The book has a huge Civil War soldier roster and a list of Spanish-American War soldiers as well. The original owner of the book has added some notes throughout the book, including some ominous "D"s next to some soldier's names which may stand for "Deceased": there is no "D" next to Howard's name). The book also has some statistical charts, and a nice old embossed cloth-bound cover in very good condition. Also included with the book is a one-page period typed list of the payroll for Howard's Company (A).
