Summary
"Specially commissioned photographs of more than 700 key artifacts and military equipment bring to life the experiences of Union and Confederate soldiers of all ranks, by exploring the uniforms, weapons, and objects carried by soldiers on both sides. There is an abiding fascination with the Civil War. What personal items did soldiers carry in their haversacks? How did the weaponry differ between ranks? This is the ultimate quartermaster's locker room--a full-scale armory of detailed information. This is an essential work for those who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of military life during one of the greatest conflicts in history--especially anyone interested in the widely popular Civil War reenactments. This book offers unique and detailed information about the personal items that a typical soldier carried along with weapons and other military necessities. Selected for their importance to the outcome, the artifacts include Union and Confederate guns, swords, artillery, uniforms, medals, equipment, and much more."--Page [4] of cover
