GETTYSBURG PENNSYLVANIA PA 1858 Good+ 
On offer is a sensational Civil War era handwritten journal of medical cures, home remedies, salve recipes, paint recipes, ointments, tanning instructions, medicinal powders and much, much more, once owned by David Young (born 1838), son of William Young of Two Taverns, Pennsylvania, and husband of Adeline (Plank) Young, daughter of George and Hester Plank and sister of Sarah (Plank) Spangler. The Spangler's were a noted Pennsylvania family whose property was part of the Gettysburg battle. This 6 5/8 x 8 1/8 inch book has 190 hand numbered pages and is filled with writings and littered with ephemera, letters, notes and clippings. While the book begins in Mr. Young's hand identifying his purchase of the book for 3 cents from A.D. Buehlers whom it seems David clerked for in 1858 when the book begins. Most of the writings are within a few years of 1858 but there are later notes and updates in other hands up to 1905.
