C. 1860s

This is one of the 128 books from The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, commonly referred to as the Official Records or, simply the "O.R." Almost 2,000 pages of reports and correspondence went into the two volumes of the O.R. related to General Robert E. Lee's Maryland Campaign. A significant number of these documents focused on the Battle of Harpers Ferry and its aftermath, including the "Record of the Harpers Ferry Military Commission," a comprehensive military investigation of the battle.
