Both 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.
