Heritage to auction Civil War items and rare books

Not all Janney Family posts can be about Daisy, right? Anyway, this site receives a good number of Civil War enthusiasts to the Harmon Hubbard section and this is finally a post for them.

On February 20-21 Heritage Galleries will be holding a two-day auction at their Dallas, Texas headquarters that will include the only known copy of Union Major General George Meade's (1815-1872) first report of victory at Gettysburg. Also included is a metal bust of Lincoln measuring 53" high. The style of sculpting was popular during the last years of the Civil War. Heritage accepts bids via online and phone as well.
