Confederate Uniforms, Harper's weekly, 1861 Harper's Weekly is a bottomless source, The End. That means for pretty much anything era- during its long run the magazine typically immersed itself in the war nearly to the exclusion of other topics, if other topics there were. For instance, if the wife of the President was forced to hurl herself from her carriage, sustaining injury because the horse became a runaway, it'd b a pretty big news story, right? Unless it happened the first days of July, 1863. Got 4 lines. Harper's Weekly printed everything - their artists take us from aerial views of battle to the dimness inside a hut, soldiers crowded and passing time in winter camp to sinking ships to unbelievably for the era, women in the war. Bumped into this- guessing between Union and Confederate the latter changed most frequently so perhaps this is some official base? Claiming it for Ladies Tea because guess who got to sew them? No uniform historian here, guessing at least whatever ' bases ' are depicted here would be accurate?
