The outcome of nearly every major battle of the war depended on infantry, the foot soldiers in blue and gray who wielded the muskets and sabers. Although some standardization existed, soldiers often modified their uniforms to meet battlefield necessity or to express unit pride, such as the Pennsylvania regiment known by the bucktails troops wore in their hats. The photographs in this volume indicate what infantrymen wore and carried, and Troiani's paintings bring the men and their deeds to vivid life.
