Overview

Independent historian Moore and artist Haynes have collaborated on an illustrated history of the clothing, weaponry, and army life of the Lewis & Clark expedition. Their extensive research and their interest in living- history is evident both in text and illustration, which describe the background to the expedition and details of the soldiers' life such as food, medical care, discipline, hairstyles, and most of all clothing. Haynes' finely rendered line drawings and paintings of shirts, vests, jackets, breeches, dress uniforms, insignia, hats, footwear, and cold weather gear, are combined with photographs of relics, and reproductions of illustrations from that time period. The shape of the book is almost square (10.75x10.25"). Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

An excellent source for historically accurate clothing of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Using primary source documents and period drawings, along with the art of Michael Haynes, expedition members are brought to life with this timely work. There are some discrepancies, but overall there are no major complaints. Personally, I wish more effort would have been made to research expedition weapons, one area in the book that falls short. For example, the myth of the 'M1792 contract long rifle pattern' persists (parts on these rifles date from 1812). Also, no real effort is made to document the use of the Model 1803 'short rifle' by the expedition (as recorded in the journals by Lewis and Ordway). Some of the clothing info was previously published by 'The Company of Military Historians' in 1951 and 1994, but Moore's research efforts to uncover more documentation are commendable. Hopefully Lewis and Clark enthusiasts and reenactor's will use this book to improve their sometimes silly buckskinning persona's. A definite 'must buy' for any serious Lewis and Clark enthusiast.
