Brown hard cover with red lettering. Cover is slightly rubbed/edge worn. Else is overall still very good. Lithographed reprint of the original 1881 edition. Account of the almost 500 men who walked 2000 miles from Council Bluffs, Iowa to San Diego in the winter of 1846 to particpate in the war.
; After a lapse of thirty-six years from the time of the enlistment of the Mormon Battalion, no apology is required for publishing its history. Had its publication been undertaken at an earlier date, it might have been accomplished more satisfactorily to all concerned, as many important and interesting facts and incidents have doubtless been buried with the departed veterans. However, the most sanguine expectations of the author have been realized in the data collected for compiling this history, consisting of diaries written during service and numerous letters and statements from surviving members of that valiant corps. Neither labor, pains nor expense has been spared in the effort to make this a just and authentic history. The author has not aimed at sensational effect, nor made any attempt at literary embellishment, but rather endeavored to offer a plain statement of facts and give due credit to all concerned. Should his efforts meet the approval of his intelligent readers, his highest ambition in the publication of this work will be attained.
