Rally Round the FlagaUniforms of the Union Volunteers of 1861 : The New England States Hardback

Description

This volume examines what the citizen soldiery of the New England States wore when they marched off to save the Union in 1861.

An exhaustive search of thousands of newspapers yielded a myriad of reports and personal accounts from soldiers' letters, which together offer a hitherto unpublished view of the stirring events during the first few months of the Civil War.

Combined with fascinating detail from numerous diaries and regimental histories, the author is able to describe the appearance of the Union volunteers of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont, and Maine.

The narrative is enhanced by photographs of original uniform items from private collections, plus imagery of the day showing the great variety of clothing and headgear worn.

Accepted by The Company of Military Historians, this is an essential reference for collectors, living historians, modelers, and curators, as well as anyone with a general interest in the Civil War.
