At end of book are 3 foldouts on one how to direct fire on a column of soldiers. The most interesting is pictured and it is how to direct your first then second shots on a mounted column of soldiers. The first and second shots were color coded in 1859 by hand. Very interesting. The book has stains on cover and a 1/2 inch tear at top of spine, some wear on corners of cover.
