The unexampled success that has attended our Agents in canvasssing for the “ GREAT REBELLION," and the rapidity with which orders have accumulated since issuing our Prospectus, furnish the most gratifying evidence of the high estimation in which Mr. Headley is held by the public as an Author; and the impatient desire every where manifested to receive the work, has led us to issue the first volume at as early a day as practicable, consistently with a due regard to its correctness.
Volume I. contains a History of the origin of the War, and its progress during a period of nearly eighteen months, up to the last of June, 1862.
The numerous fine steel Engravings in the volume, have been produced at great expense
much to its interest and value. Great pains has been taken to procure accurate likenesses for the Portraits; while the spirited views illustrative of important events of the war, are from original drawings executed expressly for this work by Darley and other eminent artists.
Volume II. completing the History, and containing valuable statistics, will be prepared as fast as the receipt of authentic material by the Author will permit, and be issued within six months after the close of the war, or sooner if practicable and deemed expedient.
As the History of this great struggle advances towards its final consummation, it will increase in importance and interest. The seven days' battles before Richmond, the great battle of Antietam, and others already fought, and the thrilling events constantly transpiring throughout the Union, will furnish an ample field for the peculiar genius of our Author.
In the character of its Engravings we hope to make the second volume superior even to the first. Among other Illustrations it will contain Portraits of the prominent Fighting Generals both Union and Confederate.
