UNCLE SAM'S ARMY BOYS in KHAKI UNDER CANVAS by Burley 1919
UNCLE SAM'S ARMY BOYS IN KHAKI UNDER CANVAS or BOB HAMILTON AND THE MUNITION PLANT PLOT. By Major Andrew S. Burley, M. A. Donohue & Co., Chicago, 1919.
Juvenile - Classic Fiction
Robert Lee "Bob" Hamilton is a descendant of Robert E. Lee. Bob and his pal Sid join the Virginia State Militia and fight in several spots during and after WWI. A typical wartime boys' series, the books are full of patriotism and ideals of "Southern manliness and honor." While Bob exhibits these qualities in spades, there is something mildly endearing about a military series in which the hero is so reluctant to actually fight.
Nice cover with a secure binding and clean pages (light pull at frontis picture gutter). 250 pages.
