New York, New York: February 10, 1890

The Century Company is pleased to announce that it has received a contract from the Empire of Tossia for a translation of the Century four volume series, Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, into Gaaryani, along with J. Thomas Scharf’s excellent work, The History of the Confederate States Navy, and Lieutenant Commander Caspar Goodrich’s Report of the British Naval and Military Operations in Egypt 1882. Mr. Scharf’s book will be translated with his permission, the Century paying him for the privilege of performing the translation. The Empire of Tossia will be sending qualified translators to New York at the Empire’s expense to assist with the translation. The initial print run will be for 100 copies of each work, but the Century anticipates further sales to the Martian market.
Both the Scharf and Goodrich book can be found and downloaded online, while Battles and Leaders is still an extremely valuable source for Civil War historians. It also is a good source of information on Civil War weaponry, as is the Scharf book. The relevance of the Goodrich book to Mars should be pretty obvious.

Edit Note: Battles and Leaders of the Civil War is available for reading online at the following site.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail,
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
