The rare and fascinating magazine entitled, The United States Military Magazine and Record of all the Volunteers, together with the Army and Navy, was published in Philadelphia by Huddy & Duval from 1839 to 1841. Volume I dealt with volunteer companies, volume II with the exploits of the United States Army & Navy, and volume III with more volunteers. Issues were sold either colored for $1.00 or plain for 50 cents. This is a fine rendering of Trumbull’s classic image of the Battle of Bunker’s Hill, lithographed by Alfred Hoffy, one of the leading American lithographers of the first part of the nineteenth century.
