Author's Note

The uniforms described in this book arc variations from regulation US Army and Confederate patterns. Such references may be checked against the regulation uniforms described and illustrated in dept in MAA 170, American Civil War Armies (1): Confederate Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry, MAA 177, American Civil War Armies (2): Union Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry: and MAA 179, American Civil War Annie. (3): Staff, Specialist and Maritime Services.

A word 011 spellings: in the 1860s, as some of the quotations in this book make clear, Americans spelle< the colour both 'grey' and 'gray'. Since the MAA series style is to use British spellings except in direct quoted speech, we have followed our usual practice here, although this inevitably produces some inconsistencies.
