A book that was 145 years overdue has been returned to a college library in the US state of Virginia. Luckily for the borrower's descendant, the fee was waived.
The book, taken by a Union soldier from the Lexington college library in 1864, was returned in February by its inheritor, All Headline News reports.
It was the first volume of W.F.P. Napier's History of the War in the Peninsula and in the South of France.
