Doll, William Henry Harrison. HISTORY OF THE SIXTH REGIMENT INDIANA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY IN THE CIVIL WAR, APRIL 25, 1861, TO SEPTEMBER 22, 1864. Columbus, Ind.: Republican Job Print, 1903. 130 pp., 15 plates (including frontispiece). First edition.

Original cloth, one small closed tear in margin of leaf comprising pp.78-79, small abrasion in cloth at bottom edge of rear board. A very good copy of this rare regimental. The Sixth Indiana Infantry was a storied unit commanded by the famous Col. T. T. Crittenden. They served for three years as part of the 20th Army Corps.

This book was formerly owned and signed by a soldier in the unit. It belonged to 1st Sergeant Willis H. Ryker who enlisted on August 8, 1861 in Madison, Indiana. Ryker's picture is in the book, opposite page 48. Sergeant Ryker also filled out a pre-printed page, opposite page 8, with his Military Record.

He lists in manuscript under Memoranda of Engagements: "Shiloh. La Vergne, Liberty Gap, Stone River, Chickamauga, Hiwassee River, Buzzard Roost, Resaca, Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, Chattahoochee River, Peachtree creek and siege of Atlanta." A particularly nice association copy.
