Field, Ron: The Confederate Army 1861-65 (3): Louisiana & Texas
Book Number: 008133
Osprey Pub Co 2006 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall New book, 48 pages, MAA430. The common image of the Confederate Army during the Civil War is dominated by a limited number of early photographs of offices 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.
