Book Description

10 May 2008 Men-at-Arms (Book 446)
The Southern states which formed 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 American Civil War; and these non-standard uniforms were often retained until well into the course of the war. The regulation patterns centrally prescribed by the Confederate Army were only ever followed unevenly, and state quartermasters continued to issue uniforms showing regional and state differences. This last in a series of six titles studies the archival and pictorial evidence for the infantry, cavalry and artillery of the final states to secede from the Union - Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland - and is illustrated with fascinating early photographic portraits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting 15 Nov 2010
By Chad David Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is very interesting and highlights some poorly known uniforms and units of the South. I loved the details and like to use this as a guide for painting. My only complaint is that some of the uniforms were purely pre-war and do not reflect anything that appeared in the field. The Kentucky uniforms were great, but Kentucy eventually went for the union and the interesting Kentucky uniforms never made it off of the pre-war parade grounds. That did not stop me from using them as examples for painting and converting miniatures for wargames.
