Armstrong, MO Armstrong Herald Print 1st. Three-Quarter Leather Very Good 
Black cloth with leather spine & corners and original cover laid on, professionally rebound w/marbled endpapers, 157 pp., frontis of McCorkle, 10 plates. Black box. Last page appears to be a copy. McCorkle formed part of Rassieuer's Regt., Raines' Division, 7th Missouri Cavalry. He was captured at Wilson's Creek & his experiences as a prisoner in Missouri are true indicators of the hatred between the North & South on the border. After trying to live in peace in Jackson Cty., Missouri, he found the prejudice unbearable and joined Quantrell at Independence & left an impressive record of his services. His recollections of Quantrell, Cole Younger, George Todd, and others make this one of the best books on guerilla operations in the West.
