Identified to a 2nd Maine Infantry transferee to the hard fought 20th Maine Infantry troop, this well worn soldier’s music book is none the less complete with no torn pages and is solid with the exception of the back cover which is there but separated. This rarely seen original 1863 publication of The Bugle Call by Root & Candy of Chicago measures approximately 9 ½ X 6 ½ inches with 60 pages of war songs and patriotic music with lyrics. (An interesting variation to the American music collector is the oddity of having a section of the book, pages 15 through 30, bound in upside down.) The book’s patriotic offerings include: The bugle-call -- Stand up for Uncle Sam, my boys -- The harp of the Union band -- The Union League -- America -- Clear the way -- God save the nation -- The skedaddle rangers -- The ship of Union -- Gone to the war -- Flag of the fearless free -- Call 'em names Jeff -- Stand by the president -- The battle-cry of freedom -- O, wrap the flag around me, boys -- Our soldiers stand upon the field -- Hail, Columbia -- The star-spangled banner (lyrics only) -- What's the cause of this commotion -- After the battle -- Uncle Sam's funeral -- Ho! for the gun-boats -- The battle-call -- Brave boys are they -- Jefferson D., Sir -- Come rouse up! brave boys -- Grafted into the army -- English neutrality -- Fine old Union gentleman (lyrics only) -- Freedom and Union (lyrics only) and more.
A period pencil identification on the front cover offers G. S. Gould – Maine while on the first page in the top margin we see: Bangor Me. – Gilman S. Gould – Maine in period script.
Gilman S. Gould gave his residence as Muscle Rig Place, when he enlisted as a 24 year old Down EastMainer and mustered in on October 17, 1862 as a Private of Co. G 2nd Maine Infantry A list of the important battles in which the 2nd Maine participated during Gould’s tenure with the regiment would include, Yorktown, Hanover Court House, Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. On May 20, 1863 the hardened veteran transferred to Co. H of the 20th Maine Infantry. Here the record becomes a bit foggy as while the Maine Adjutant Report lists a Gilman S. Gold as a transfer from the 2nd Maine to the 20th Maine, the early reference Maine at Gettysburg lists only a single Gould in the regiment, William F. Gould (a transferee from the 2nd Maine) serving as a musician in Capt. Walter Morrill’s Co. B of the 20th Maine. Some further research will likely unravel this all too common records puzzle. The Maine Adjutant Report has our man transferring to the Veteran Reserve Corps on March 15 1865 with no method or date of discharge given? As we have advised, this piece is offered as found with some folds at the corners and lots of evidence of period use but as we say, complete with no major page tears, stains or other issues save separation of the back cover. A scarce Civil War collectable with a desirable 2nd Maine Infantry and 20th Maine Volunteers connection.
