Don Troiani's Civil War Cavalry and Artillery by Don Troiani
Book DescriptionBoth the cavalry and the artillery played critical roles in the Civil War. The uniforms of horsemen and cannoneers resembled those of the infantry but differed in key respects, such as the bright yellow trim that distinguished the cavalry and the crossed-cannon insignia of the artillery. The artwork in this volume gives a flavour of how these specialised troops were outfitted.

Don Troiani's Civil War Militia and Volunteers, Paperback (March 2006)
State militias were among the first troops to respond to the outbreak of the Civil War. Those who answered the call to arms represented a cross-section of the country, both North and South, and the uniforms of these volunteers reflected their home regions and, in many cases, national origins.
Don Troiani's Civil War Zouaves, Chasseurs, Special Branches, and Officers, Paperback (March 2006)
Perhaps the most famous - and certainly the most exotic - uniforms of the Civil War belonged to the Zouaves, troops of French derivation whose vibrant attire was accented by fezzes and baggy trousers. These soldiers cut a flashy figure, and Troiani depicts them in all their colourful glory.
