Summary

Summary

Although "the Blue and the Gray" succinctly evokes the North and the South, in actuality, the uniforms of Civil War soldiers were anything but "uniform" -- neither in color nor any other facet. Uniforms of the Civil War fully explores this fascinating branch of military history, presenting an in-depth study of the many and varied uniforms worn by Northern and Southern soldiers.
