From the dust jacket: "Through these pages, the Civil War and the men who fought it become more meaningful and personal to teachers, students, collectors, buffs, anyone who likes to dip into the past. Here are descriptions of more than 800 different items used by soldiers, sailors, marines on both sides. The things for personal comfort as well as the conduct of war. Some of the entries may be surprising at first - fougasse, instant coffee, rockets, brogans - but they're real, and they're here to make this the complete book of Civil War relics. For fast finding, items are arranged alphabetically under 155 major topics with each category sharing in more than 350 photographs and drawings that make details clear. There's an added bonus in the extensive list of Federal and Confederate contractors, patentees, and suppliers, all arranged alphabetically by product. This and the exhaustive bibliography are the researcher's delight. This is the Civil War, in the weapons, clothing, military and personal equipment of men who helped forge our heritage.
