"Point is they were better uniformed than is commonly thought"Point is they were better uniformed than is commonly thought.
there are also accounts, records, reports, that suggest they were relatively well supplied - no, not always, but better than is widely believed.
This is a book that is a must have for those that are seriously interested in uniforms. The title was chosen to provoke, which I believe detracts from the purpose of the tome.
I completely agree with Legion Para that references/reviews from Les, Frederick and others might have been beneficial. He does have a forward from William Frassanito, who is recognized as an expert in ACW photography, but not sure about uniforms.
I am glad that I purchased the book and have used it a few times, to confirm clothing issues.
Legion Para. Many thanks for your concern regarding the sales of my book. At present, the first print (of several hundred copies) has sold out. I was also given 28 copies and 21 of these have sold as well. Many contributors to this thread have bought a copy. Volume 2, concentrating on Confederate Uniforms at Antietam,is almost ready. This, smaller volume, reveals some outstanding data. Whole Confederate Brigades receiving new English cloth uniforms in July/August 1862!As I stated earlier today, I would like to know how sales for Volume 1 have gone and what are the plans for future volumes.
Hi Jeff,The first print has sold out. 2o or so copies have gone to Forum members who's reviews (on this site) have been excellent. My publisher is, at present, trying to negotiate a deal with a U.S. Distributor.
The second print of the book has gone ahead (the first print having sold out in 3 months), and is now available worldwide. If anyone is interested in purchasing a copy please contact me as my wife and I have taken over the distribution.Just wondering if a decision was made to release this in the US or not.

A second work ‘Confederate Uniforms During The Maryland Campaign’ is to be released shortly. This book really is an eye opener, with numerous color plates, clothing issue tables, eyewitness accounts, photographic details and many facts that really are mind blowing. Ragged Rebs in Maryland? I think not!
