Many of these photographs have survived to provide historians and enthusiasts with accurate data on uniforms and weapons. Hundreds of authentic replications are presented here with insightful captions pointing out details that the average observer might miss. Sometimes the faces themselves tell the stories, sometimes the clues lie in the number or placement of buttons or in insignia upon a breastplate. A chronology of major battles and turning points gives perspective, while a description of the purpose of each corps and squadron provides a unique viewpoint on the individuals. Uniforms and weapons are explained and illustrated in detail lending even more meaning to the photos throughout.
