The Confederate Army 1861-65 : Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland v. 6, Paperback / softback Book

The Confederate Army 1861-65 : Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland v. 6 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Richard Hook

Part of the Men-at-Arms series

Description

Despite the overwhelming image of Confederate soldiers dressed in their drab butternut and gray, 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 issued their own uniform regulations at the outbreak of the War Between the States and these non-standard uniforms were often retained deep into 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 concluding book in a series of six titles studies the archival and pictorial evidence for the infantry, cavalry and artillery of the states that fought for the South even though they never officially seceded - Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland - and is illustrated with fascinating and poignant early photographic portraits.
