I was wondering the most common term Civil War soldiers used for their foot wear. When I have read letters it seems the term shoes or Army shoes were used, I do occasionally see the term booties. Modern reenactors use the term Brogans but was this term commonly used during the Civil War? Was the term Monticello used much? Was the term Balmoral shoe used? I have seen books that use the term Blucher booties used. Also tall boots without laces were called Wellington boots, and top boots.
