Incidents of the War: Humorous, Pathetic, and Descriptive, Alf Burnett
6 Alf Burnett Incidents of the War: Humorous, Pathetic, and Descriptive
Rickey & Caroll 1863 281BNB1002800 First Edition Hardcover Collectible - Very Good 
REcently rebound using orignal boards with nwe spine. Foxing throughout. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding very tight and square. ......................... When Alf Burnett died in Cincinnati on 4 April 1884, the nation mourned “America’s Representative Humorist.” For almost 30 years, Burnett had tickled audiences with his interpretations of stock characters from old men to young women, country folk, French, Dutch, Irish and Yankee stereotypes, and an old woman known as “Mrs. Wiggles.” His “Hepsidam Sermon,” delivered in the style of an illiterate but righteous preacher, brought gales of laughter for decades....... While on tour in 1861, Alf heard about the Confederate attack upon Fort Sumter which started the Civil War and promptly enlisted in the 6th Ohio Infantry Regiment, known as the “Guthrie Grays.” While serving as a private, he secured a position as war correspondent for three Cincinnati newspapers. His mostly humorous dispatches were printed as a book in 1863, including his infamous “Hepsidam Sermon.” In 1863, Alf Burnett visited a friend, Colonel James Brownlow, in the camp of General William Rosecrans at Triune, Tennessee. Colonel Brownlow prevailed upon the camp chaplain to accept a visiting pastor for that week’s services and Burnett mounted the pulpit after a fine introduction and a spritely hymn, and began delivering his comedy sermon. Once the chaplain caught on to the parody, he grabbed Burnett by the scruff of his neck and marched him out of the camp gates, swearing mightily. General Rosecrans investigated the disturbance and had Burnett repeat the performance for his review. Rosecrans enjoyed it so much, he had Burnett deliver the Hepsidam Sermon nightly in the officers tent. Here is an excerpt: I am a plain and unlarnt preacher, of whom you’ve no doubt heern on afore; and I now appear to expound the scripters, and pint out the narrow way which leads from a vain world to the streets of the Juroosalum; and my tex which I shall choose for the occasion is somewhar between the second Chronikills and the last chapter of Timothy Titus, and when found you will find it in these words: “And they shall gnaw a file, and flee unto the mountains of Hepsidam, whar the lion roareth and the whang-doodle mourneth for its first-born.” Now, my beluved brethering, as I have afore told you, I am an unedicated man, and know nothing about grammar talk and collidge highfaluting; but I’m a plain, unlarnt preacher of the Gospil, what’s been foreordained, and called to expound the scripters to a dyin’ world, and prepare a perverse generation for the day of wrath; “for they shall gnaw a file, and flee unto the mountains of Hepsidam, whar the lion roareth and the whang-doodle mourneth for its first-born.” After the war, Burnett revived his peripatetic schedule, presenting shows throughout the United States, with successful runs in San Francisco, New Orleans and New York. He was also a star in Europe and had, in fact, just returned from an extended engagement in England when he died. His final engagement was at the Harris Museum on Vine Street in Cincinnati, where he was earning $200 weekly - more than $5,000 a week in today’s money. One obituary noted: “Mr. Burnett was always successful financially, but his extravagant liberality prevented him accumulating any great wealth.”
