INTRODUCTION

In 1890, the Army of the United States published a volume including all regulations that had been issued since the formation of the Continental Army in 1775 (and some related to the Minute Men of Massachusetts), pertaining to official uniform. The book, entitled Uniform of the Army of the United States, Illustrated, From 1774 to 1889, featured 44 full-color plates of paintings by artist H. A. Ogden.

In carrying out his commission, Ogden composed a wide variety of scenes in which were featured officers and enlisted men from many different Army services, in diverse settings and activities. To show the various uniforms where and when they would be worn in actual military circumstances, he portrayed natural-looking groupings and interactions, such as soldiers reading their mail or playing checkers in garrison; officers conferring or reporting in urban townhouses or rural mansions; the activity of a campaign encampment; soldiers marching or carrying messages in open country; or cadets and officers at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. Ogden included portraits of several well-known generals, and even painted specific officers of lesser rank who were his contemporaries.

This Dover publication, Uniforms of the United States Army, 1774—1889, in Full Color, reproduces all 44 of Ogden's detailed paintings, with captions identifying the Army service and rank of each soldier whose uniform is presented. From the infantry and sharpshooters of the Revolutionary War to the cavalry who fought the last of the Indian Wars, and from full-dress uniform to campaign garb to fatigues, a wide range of U.S. Army uniforms is featured in this unique collection of full-color plates.
