The uniforms and equipment worn by Marines during the Civil War are virtually unknown. This book is the first in-depth study of Marine uniforms and equipment ever undertaken, and it includes hundreds of contemporary studio portraits of officers and men wearing the items described and illustrated in the 1859 uniform regulations plus hundreds of color photographs of surviving material. There are complete chapters on the evolution of Marine insignia, swords, headdress, and all types of uniforms and clothing, to include the origin of the Marine officers' quatrefoil and the modern noncommissioned officers' sword.

There is no other reference book of this magnitude on Marine dress and equipment of the period.
