The common image of the Confederate Army during the Civil War (1861-1865) is dominated by a limited number of early photographs of officers and men wearing the gray and butternut associated with the CS regulations and quartermaster issues. This sequence of books examines a much wider field: the original uniforms of the state militia and volunteer companies brought together to form the Confederate field armies, and the continuing efforts to clothe troops as wear-and-tear gradually reduced the originally wide range of uniforms. A mass of information from contemporary documents is illustrated with rare photographs and meticulous color reconstructions.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The states of the Confederacy in 1861 fielded many units of volunteer troops wearing a remarkably wide variety of uniforms, often reflecting foreign influences. In a spirit of independence, many states also issued their own uniform regulations on the outbreak of the War Between the States, and these non-standard uniforms were often retained until well into the course of the war. The cosmopolitan history of these Gulf states led to a wide range of influences from France, Italy, Germany and Mexico on their uniforms. This book studies the archival and pictorial evidence for the infantry, cavalry and artillery of Louisiana and Texas, featuring illustrations and fascinating early photographic portraits.
