1865 Trip of The Oceanus Book
The full title of this book is
"The trip of the steamer Oceanus to Fort Sumter and Charleston, S. C. Comprising the ... programme of exercises at the re-raising of the flag over the ruins of Fort Sumter, April 14th, 1865. By a committee appointed by the passengers of the Oceanus."
It is an account of the trip to once again raise the Stars and Stripes over the ruins of Fort Sumter in Charleston, SC. The trip was undertaken after the assassination of President Lincoln and this bittersweet expedition is both exceedingly exciting and profoundly sad as the raising of the United States flag over Ft Sumter is the end of our Civil War and a new beginning for our country.
It is signed twice by John Lowe Jr who was one of the passengers on this historic trip.
This is a first edition of this rare book and, with this signature, is perfect for the Civil War buff in your family.
