I know they have these books at the Gettysburg Visitor Center Bookstore (amongst other places in town) but they have to be somewhere else.

They are little pocket sized field guides for officers that were published by the US War Department in the 1860s. I believe there is one for each branch of the military.

Here is a link for the Infantry version entitled: The 1863 U. S. Infantry Tactics: Infantry of the Line, Light Infantry, and Riflemen,M1
