Terrible Swift Sword: Union Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry, 1861–1865
G.I. The Illustrated History of the American Soldier, His Uniform and His Equipment
This fascinating addition to the GI series demonstrates the full range of uniforms, equipment, and armament used by the troops who fought for Abraham Lincoln’s Union army during the American Civil War. Far from being uniformly clad in blue, the Union soldier appeared in a great variety of clothing, from simple civilian-style dress to elaborate uniforms inspired by European armies.
This volume covers artillery, cavalry and infantry and includes over a dozen color images produced in the 1860s for the U.S. Army Quartermaster Department, as well as the complete 1861 U.S. Army uniform regulations.
