For another thread I look through some older magazines and reread Enlisted Uniforms of the Maryland Confederate infantry; A Case Study part I and part II by Ross M. Kimmel which made me realize we could have a thread on what the 12,000 Confederates from Maryland wore.

So many men from Maryland served in non Maryland units but there were two regiments of Maryland Infantry, two battalions of Maryland cavalry, and four batteries of Maryland artillery. Don Troiani has done a couple of images of Maryland soldiers.

There are a couple serving jackets worn by confederates from Maryland and the jacket and trousers of Courtney Jenkins is a good place to start. Although the Jenkins uniform was worn when he was in the 21st Virginia, it appears to match the jackets worn by members of the 1st Maryland Infantry.

The above articles are a very good study of uniforms worn by Maryland Confederate soldiers and have many photos, but what other sources should one look at to gain a better understanding of Maryland uniforms?
