            With the exception of the royal marines, who adopted light infantry rank insignia from their earliest days, the Royal Navy was slow to introduce distinguishing rate badges for those serving on the 'lower deck'. Even when they were introduced, in 1853, the corresponding introducti...on of a uniform was still four years away.

            Rally Round the Flag: Uniforms of the Union Volunteers of 1861

            Rally Round the Flag: Uniforms of the Union Volunteers of 1861 (Hardback)

            By Field, Ron

            This volume examines what the citizen soldiery of the New England States wore when they marched off to save the Union in 1861. An exhaustive search of thousands of newspapers yielded a myriad of reports and personal accounts from soldiers letters, which together offer a hitherto ...unpublished view of the stirring events during the first few months of the Civil War. Combined with fascinating detail from numerous diaries and regimental histories, the author is able to describe the appearance of the Union volunteers of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont, and Maine. The narrative is enhanced by photographs of original uniform items from private collections, plus imagery of the day showing the great variety of clothing and headgear worn. Accepted by The Company of Military Historians, this is an essential reference for collectors, living historians, modellers, and curators, as well as anyone with a general interest in the Civil War.
