Osprey Men-at-Arms 190 : American Civil War Armies (4) : State Troops

'The War between the States' is the term used for the American Civil War throughout much of the South even today. While it was actually a war fought between two central governments, many men on both sides - not just the South - felt that they were serving their states as much, if not more, than their central governments. Many of the states agreed; the state governments raising their own units, commissioning their officers, and supplying their men. Indeed, many of the units that fought the Civil War were supplied in large part by their own states rather than by the central government's quartermasters. New York, for example, on the Northern side, had its own state uniforms which it provided to many of its regiments in the Union Army. On the Southern side, North Carolina also had its own dress regulations and its own factories producing uniforms and equipment, and imported additional uniforms for its troops serving with the Confederacy. Other states, too, had their own dress regulations and supplied their troops with unique uniforms. To a lesser extent, all the states - especially in 1861, when the two central governments were unable to meet the needs of all the volunteers - provided uniforms, weapons, and accoutrements for their own men. Philip Katcher explores the Civil War uniforms of 32 states; from Alabama to Wisconsin, together with contemporary photographs, illustrations, and eight full page colour plates by Ron Volstad.
