I used to work for Goodwill in the past as a production associate and worked with receiving all the donations and everything else that was required. Man! I couldn't believe how many Civil War/War Between the States books that were donated! But here's a rule working for Goodwill; I cannot shop at the store where I work but can shop at other Goodwill stores which makes sense because we the workers would seize and buy the best stuff for ourselves and it wouldn't be fair to the customers. I've received donations of books on this war period that were worth a lot of money, like for an example; Manse Jolly which I knew was out of print and hard to find and expensive but to sell it at the store, it would only be $2.00 for a hardcover book while softcover books were just $1.00. There was another out of print book on Cadets in Gray and to sell it at the store would only be 2 bucks. There was once a 3 volume bookset on the CW/WBTS by Shelby Foote donated. And I couldn't shop there!!! Ahh!!! haha, So my advice is GO to Goodwill if you can for you never know what books you may find especially those that are hard to find, out of print and worth good money.
