Civil War Very Scarce & Comprehensive Report from the Sanitary Commission #1353

As you can see from this title page of the report, it focused on the conditions of the Union troops in the Mississippi Valley at the beginning of the Civil War at the end of November 1861. These printed reports from the Sanitary Commission were published primarily to inform the Congress, President and other officials as to the status of the war effort and the work done by the Sanitary Commission, an amazing organization that was vital to the well-being of Northern troops and to the North winning the war.

Sanitary Commission and Sanitary Fair documents and other items have become very scarce--and consequently very expensive. We sold a collection of Sanitary Fair passes and tickets via Heritage Auctions about ten years ago and the "season passes" to various fairs brought about $500 each.

A report such as this one could easily sell for $75-100 on Ebay.
