Offered is a complete set of 50 "Histories of Generals" booklet series produced by Duke Cigarettes. This edition is rarely offered as a complete set and is one of the hobby's most popular 19th Century non-sports issues. The functionally designed "Generals" booklets contain mini-biographies of the War's most prominent figures with, in a number of cases, entries narrated by the historymakers, themselves! Far more than simple, two-dimensional collectibles, these are exceptionally scarce and significant period artifacts. The gallery includes: Banks, Beauregard, Bragg, Breckinridge, Burell, Burnside, Butler (missing staple), Early, Ewell, Farragut, Foote, Forrest, Garfield, Gilmore, Gordon, U.S. Grant, Halleck, Hampton, Hancock, Hardee, Hill, Hood, Hooker, Howard, T.J. Jackson, A.S. Johnston, J.E. Johnston, R.E. Lee, Logan, Longstreet, Lyon, Magruder, McClellan, McDowell, Meade, Morgan, Pemberton, Pickett, Polk (punch hole), Porter, Price, Rosecrans, Scott, Sedwick, Semmes, Sheridan, Sherman, Sigel, Smith and Stuart. Booklets grade 84% VG to EX, 16% lesser.
