Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Handy-Book for the U.S. Soldier, on Coming into Service. Containing the Instruction in the School of the Soldier with a preliminary instruction of the Formation of the Battalion on Parade, the Position of the Officers, &c, &c.

Reproduction of the original (1861) Handy-Book. To the recruit just mustered into service, the system of tactics seems extensive and difficult. The design of this little handy-book is to divide the instruction, and, by presenting a complete system for the drill of the individual soldier, to prepare him for the use and study of the authorized U.S. Infantry Tactics, in the school of the company and the battalion. The manual of arms for the musket, as well as that for the rifle, will be found in this volume; and the soldier who is practically acquainted with its contents is prepared to take an intelligent part in the company movements, which will be found in the authorized tactics for the army. In order to present to him analytically a view of the organization of which he is to form a part, a preliminary explanation has been given of the formation of a battalion in line of battle, the position of the officers, field and staff, commission and non-commissioned. Having mastered this little manual, he will be prepared to enter upon the stufy of the authorized U.S. Infantry Tactics.
Soft cover, 3-3/4"x5-1/4", 94 pages. Reprint, originally published in 1861 in Philadelphia by J.B. Lippincott & Company.
