At present there are no other copies of this particular combination known available. Quite scarce; this being the laws passed by the Virginia government during the initial years of the Confederacy which had brought tumult and chaos to the city of Richmond in which the Confederate government was based. Determining the role of the state, which saw itself as a sovereign entity, and the role of the Confederate government, based just blocks away, was a balancing act of great notability to say the least. A very distinctive book for the first hand information therein - a very important sector of Captured Tyme!
