Directions for Preserving the Health of Soldiers 1778, Dr. Benjamin Rush. This small pamphlet was published in 1778 and written by Dr. Benjamin Rush for the Board of War. It contains information about dress, diet, cleanliness, encampments, and exercise. 8 pages, stitched binding. Even though this pamphlet was written over 200 years ago, many of these suggestions are suprisingly modern. Of course, others are frightening.

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.
