A Frontier Army Christmas

SKU: 1225
$13.00Price

For residents of frontier army posts, the celebration of Christmas was an exercise in imagination. An important break in the routine of army life, the rich traditions of this holiday came alive in the Old West. Divided into ten chapters, the book offers a series of contrasting images of this favorite holiday: war and peace, officers and enlisted soldiers, men and women, adults and children.
