Edited by Earl J. Coates & Frederick C. Gaede.  Hardcover.

Amidst the death and struggles of the Civil War, the overworked Quartermaster Department realized the necessity of standardized specifications on their items. Tasked in December of 1863 to achieve this goal by the Quartermaster General, Colonel George H. Crosman went to work and in one year managed to complete the bulk of this enormous task. But even as the Manual was coming closer to completion, it was put on the back burner with the Confederate surrender at Appomattox. For years it lay lost and scattered in archives deep within the Nation’s Capitol.

Nearly 150 years later, it is being published for the first time in its completed form. Complemented by the complete collection of 1866 Quartermaster Photographs, detailing regulation uniforms of the time, this is the must have for any historian or collector of Civil War era equipage.
