Scrolling down, there is a list of a small portion of books from a massive MILITARY book collection, mostly Civil War titles that we recently purchased--over 2,000 books.  Most of the titles have been printed in the last 35 years—these books, for the most part, are in “like new” condition as they were merely sitting on the shelf.  There are a good number still in shrink-wrap.  We accept checks, money orders, Master Card, Visa, and Discover credit cards.  E-mail or call us if you are interested in any of these books!

 

BE SURE TO E-MAIL US AT CIVILWARBOOKS@YAHOO.COM OR SCHROEDER.PUBLICATIONS@VERIZON.NET IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY OF THESE TITLES!  You may copy and paste the description of the book you are interested in right into your e-mail.  You can also call us about any particular book, series of books, or topics you are searching for books about, etc.  You can NOT place these book items in your shopping cart like the other ones on the web site.  The following are only single books and/or series and one-time sales listed here.

 

 We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in a particular subject, because we have many more not yet listed here.  We have books virtually on every Civil War topic, so please contact us if you are looking for a certain book or are interested in a particular top, and we’ll tell you what we have.  We have over 50 books on Lincoln; hundreds of books on Gettysburg; books on nearly every Civil War battle; a large variety of books on leaders such as Lee, Jackson, Stuart, Grant, Sherman, Sheridan; Federal and Confederate Regimental Histories; Forts; Artillery; Uniforms; Campaigns; Weapons and Ammunition; Coffee Table books and other over-sized books.  We also have a few map sets and prints.  Most of the books are hardcover/cloth, but there are a good quantity of soft cover books and numerous pamphlets too.

 

We have a first edition set of The Virginia Regimental Histories Series, all books are first edition copies signed by the author with a dust-jacket. Also, carry the Virginia Civil War Battles & Leaders Series.  $25 each.  These have been selling quickly though, and we only have a few of them left.  Most of the “out of print” first edition copies have already been sold.

 

There are a few older books from 1866 through the 1960’s, whose condition varies. 

 

We will extend a special savings of an additional 5% discount if 5 to 9 books are ordered, and a 10% discount if 10 or more books are ordered.  Dealer inquiries are welcome.

 

We also do National Archive Research and can pull Civil War Soldier Service Records and Pension Files faster and cheaper than if ordered from the National Archives itself.  We give discounts for multiple searches.  Detailed information is given on our website, just click on the bullet labeled “Soldier Research.”

 

We look forward to serving you.
