American Civil War Armies (1): Confederate Troops (Men-at-Arms, Volume 170)
By Philip Katcher
While the Southern states seceded to shape their very own executive in 1861, one in all their first strikes used to be to organise a military. The South's struggling with males served from the time in their enlistment until eventually the top of the conflict, receiving bad rations, or even worse garments – and this even though one of many first steps taken by way of the hot military used to be to layout a uniform and identify criteria for accoutrements and guns. during this first of 5 volumes interpreting American Civil conflict armies, Philip Katcher profiles the uniforms issued by way of the nationwide accomplice executive to its artillery, cavalry and infantry troops.
