A superior example of this very rare 154-year-old Civil War title.THE TRIBUTE BOOK records and commemorates the organized volunteer and relief efforts of American civilians during the Civil War. It is a public tribute to the many charitable institutions, hospitals, and civilians whose Munificence, Self-Sacrifice and Patriotism provided direct medical assistance and financial support to the Unions war effort.
Prominent among these was the United States Sanitary Commission, a private relief agency created by federal legislation to support sick and wounded soldiers of the Union. It furnishes a true portrait of American patriotism and selflessness in a time of national crisis.
Published in 1865, the year the war ended, THE TRIBUTE BOOK was written by the prolific and well-known 19th-century historian and author Frank Goodrich. Its a large, heavy book bound in leather and decorated with gilt. The book contains illustrations by the famous 19th-century illustrator Thomas Nast (who is acclaimed for his classic Santa Claus illustrations and is also said to have drawn the first-ever illustrations of Uncle Sam). In order to give you the most accurate description of this very rare volume, I have provided some helpful details below, starting with the Contents. I have also included a summary of the numerous engravings in the book.
