I have been thinking about expanding the Confederate uniform books in my library. I have a reasonably number of books on Confederate uniforms but probably am missing a few. What are the essential Civil War uniform books? I will post some suggestions for members building a reference library. These are in no particular order and i wanted to see what other forum members think of the information in these books. Book one to is to better understand Confederate uniforms worn at Gettysburg. The information is scholarly and not hard to understand. The book at 124 pages long has 220 foot notes which is fairly good for a book of this type.The book has a extensive Nice Bibliography. the book has a helpful Glossary of terms. This book is fairly low priced and affordable to everyone. The down side is the book is in black and white and several photographs, uniforms on bodies, are not clear enough to be very useful. I put this book into the "got to have" column.
