The Confederate Army 1861-65 (5)
Tennessee & North CarolinaBook - 2007
The common image of the Confederate Army during the Civil War (1861-1865) is dominated by a limited number of early photographs of troops wearing the grey and butternut of the CS regulations and quartermaster issues. By contrast, this book examines the variety of uniforms worn by the Tennessee and North Carolina militia and volunteers brought together in the Confederate field armies, and the continuing efforts to clothe them as wear-and-tear gradually reduced this wide range of uniforms. A mass of information from contemporary documents is illustrated with rare early photographs and meticulous color reconstructions in the latest instalment of Ron Field's in-depth analysis of the uniforms of the Confederate Army.
