By Lee A. Rutledge. The Post-Civil War era saw a reduction in the U.S. Army of more than a million men in a few short months. Strapped for cash and thinly spread throughout the west, the army had to make do with Civil War hand-me-downs and very few new uniform items. Lee Rutledge describes the uniforms of this period and shows how they were often modified in the field to make them serviceable on the frontier. 51 pages. 6" x 9".
