Let’s get marching with a blanket roll!

Published on May 11, 2016

Soldiers from both Southern and Northern armies can be seen in campaign images wearing blanket rolls. These were often made up to replace the knapsack and make carrying equipment both lighter and more comfortable on the march.

In Episode 10, we look at how the blanket roll was made – through the words of several veterans who marched in the Civil War. Hear the words of a Southerner as well as a man from both the eastern and western Union armies. As they describe how they made the blanket roll and we demonstrate the process.
