Gantt, E.W.:

ADDRESS OF BRIG. -GEN. E.W. GANTT, C.S.A. FIRST PUBLISHED OCTOBER 7, 1863, AT LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS.

[Philadelphia?: 1863] 29pp, original printed wrappers with wrapper title [as issued]. Light dustsoil, lightly tanned. Very Good. Much bibliographical confusion has accompanied this pamphlet. Several sources, including Howes, incorrectly say this offering reprints a Gantt 1860 Little Rock Address. But Gantt's subject is the ongoing War. "Gantt, formerly a member of the Confederate Congress and a General in the Southern Army, herein gives the reasons for his renunciation of the cause and of his acceptance and advocacy of Northern domination. The General's apostasy took place following his capture and imprisonment by the Union forces. As a final proof of his complete change of heart, he gives a seriatim account of the 'atrocities' committed by his erstwhile comrades-in-arms in Arkansas and Texas" [Eberstadt]. Allen 453 records the original Little Rock 1863 printing. LCP 3988. 110 Eberstadt 11. Bartlett 1793. Howes G57.
