Description - Don Troiani's Civil War Militia and Volunteers by Don Troiani

In the world of historical painting, Don Troiani stands alone, universally acclaimed for the accuracy, drama, and detail of his depictions of America's past. In Don Troiani's Regiments and Uniforms of the Civil War, first released in 2002, the artist turned his brush to the units and uniforms of the War between the States. Through Troiani's careful reconstructions and the accompanying text, the book offers one of the most comprehensive looks at Civil War uniforms ever undertaken. In addition to the full volume in hard cover, Stackpole Books now presents four handsome, individually bound paperbacks, each covering different branches of service and types of soldier. 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. In these photographs and paintings, Troiani conveys the rich diversity of Civil War militia and captures the uniqueness of their garb and gear.
