Publisher's Description

Early in the Civil War, soldiers wore uniforms provided by supportive states, towns, and wealthy citizens. The result was an array of styles and colors on both sides of the battlefield. Shattering the myth of "the blue and the gray," this fascinating history presents one of the most colorful and captivating aspects of Civil War history — the surprising variety of designs worn by soldiers of every rank.
Authoritative and expertly detailed, Uniforms of the Civil War surveys the distinctive garments issued to individual units from the Federal and Confederate Army, Navy, and Marine Corps, including the U.S. Militia and special forces. Explore detailed descriptions of blouses, overcoats, collars, cravats, sashes, chevrons, shoulder straps, belts, boots, and all associated gear. Readers will discover who wore what—and when. Whether dressing for the battlefield, military inspection, or a dress parade, the uniforms of Civil War soldiers were strictly regulated and highly varied. This engrossing study of Civil War apparel also highlights the garb of prisoners, bushwhackers, deserters, and veterans. Over 100 rare photographs and illustrations accompany the text.
