PAYMENT PLANS: No problem if you would like one. We understand. We have two ways to do this. The website now offers AfterPay, which allows you to break this into several payments. You do not need to speak to anyone here. They charge a small monthly fee for doing this. If you would like to set up a plan through our office, call 916-941-6896 and speak with Angela. There is no charge to do so.

SHIPPING: Shipping has gone up, but we have kept the prices as low as possible. The pricing is fixed for each classic set. If you order any two of the sets at the same time, we will be adding $3.00 of store credit to your account. If you order all three of the classic sets at the same time, we will add $5.00 of store credit to your account. Just give us time to do so because it won't be immediately. :)

WHAT ARE THE OFFICIAL RECORDS? No serious study of the American Civil War is complete without consulting the Official Records. Affectionately known as the "OR," the 128 volumes of the Official Records provide the most comprehensive, authoritative, and voluminous reference on Civil War operations. The OR is full of battle reports, letters, telegrams, and other communications organized chronologically. (Gettysburg is in volume 27, parts 1-3). Everything is by the principal leaders who fought the battles and wrote their assessments, or the telegrams, letters, and so forth. The Official Records are thus the eyewitness accounts of the people who fought the war.
Volume 19, pt. 1: Union and Confederate Reports 
Volume 19, pt. 2: Correspondence
Finding a full set of these in very good condition is tough, and for a fair price is darn near impossible.  The CD version is very hard to use, and the online versions are equally cumbersome and often error-filled. Ugh. The inexpensive paperbacks you can get are Print on Demand, cheaply made, and mine fell apart after minimal use. Don't make the same mistake. 

We are your sole source provider. 
They will not be available on Amazon, or at a discount price.
TERMS: We understand if you would like to pay in two or three installments.
No problem. No extra charge. Just ask.

STAMPING: Gold foil on the spine
