    First published back in 2003, this was (and still is) the first and only detailed study of the Southern Cross of Honor. It identifies 14 distinct varieties with enlarged illustrations and detailed notes. Also included is a history of the Crosses, illustrations of seven reproduction Crosses, and details of the four types of Certificates of Eligibility. In addition to a gallery of selected Crosses, it also lists the recipients of the first Crosses awarded in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia on April 26, 1900. These are mostly sold out.

    NOTE: The few copies I have left have ink stains on the front cover! Please be aware of this if you plan to order one! Refer to the book cover image at left for typical ink stains.


    COMMENTS..........

    "As the first-ever comprehensive work on the subject, there will undoubtedly be new information discovered which will expand on our knowledge of the subject. But given the depth of author Bertram's research and cataloging effort, I think it could be some time before this edition becomes obsolete. (Wayne Homren - The E-Sylum, October 2, 2005)


    "Thank you for your 'Little Greybook #2'. It was invaluable to me from the first day that I received it! I'm a novice civil war collector and had purchased a Southern Cross of Honor from a reputable antiques dealer. As I researched my Cross, I discovered and purchased your book and found out that my Cross was a reproduction (SCH:RF4 on page 31). I then returned to the dealer, gave him my argument and a copy of the information from your book and he immediately gave me a full refund! I'm writing to you today to thank you!"  (Robert Shepherd - 2016)
