Cutter's Official Guide to Hot Springs, Arkansas
by John Milton Cutter.

This 1917 guide told tourists, pleasure seekers, and medical patients about this early national park and city and how to use and enjoy both. It had been telling them that, in fact, since 1873, and was now in its 61st edition! Fees, services, and even the local climate were all explained as part of the amenities of "America's greatest health and pleasure resort". This booklet shows glimpses of buildings and scenes that are gone. It suggests social and recreational pursuits that were available then. The total picture reveals the grand and also the ordinary, a cross-section of the park and the city that grew together.

Photographs. 53 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-057-6. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-057-7. Order #: VIST0057 paper$6.95

John Brown's Raid at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia--1859. Temporarily out-of-print.

by Alexander R. Boteler, John E. P. Daingerfield, and F. B. Sanborn.

Here are three accounts of Brown's daring and patriotic (in his mind) but foolhardy attempt to rally the nation against slavery. Alexander R. Boteler was a West Virginia congressman who witnessed the fight. John E. P. Daingerfield was a prisoner who witnessed the fight at the engine house where the rebels holed up. F. B. Sanborn was a radical abolitionist. Sentenced to be hung for murder, treason, destruction of property, insurrection, and inciting slaves to rebel, Brown regretfully predicted that the only remaining solution to the problems of slavery in a "free society" was civil war. Foreword is by Neal F. Randell, National Park Service Park Interpreter at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.

Engravings of period scenes and of John Brown's men. 32 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-055-X. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-055-3.  Temporarily out-of-print but could be reprinted with an expressed interest. Order #: VIST0055 paper$4.95

Saint Louis in 1884: "the future great city of the world."


by William Henry Bishop.

Belching clouds of dark smoke coming from the city's factory chimneys were cited as proof that St. Louis was indeed prosperous! Early, the city was a supply depot on the west bank of the Mississippi River for emigrants heading across the plains. Native stone architecture in the city is described, as are the centers of retail trade, parks, schools, and public buildings. Reprinted from Harper's New Monthly Magazine.

Period engravings are added to the text. 24 pages. ISBN-10: 0-89646-024-X. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-024-9. Order #: VIST0024 paper$3.95

 

Three Days at Gettysburg--July 1, 2, & 3, 1863 Temporarily out-of-print, except for scuffed copies (see below).

by General Henry J. Hunt, Chief of Artillery of the Army of the Potomac.

Our author was on the field directing the artillery for the U.S. and relates his experiences and those of other units during these 3 tragic days when the Southern Army of Confederates seemed within striking distance of Washington, D.C., the nation's capitol. A preface written by the National Park Service Research Historian opines that Hunt's story is "readable and informative, and may be the best introductory history of this great Civil War battle." The battle was great, too, in the sense of the wounded, missing, or dead during these 3 days, estimated at 51,000!

Engravings are throughout the text. 64 pages.
