"By way of comprehensive sketches and informative captions, Alan H. Archambault solidifies the legacy of the Confederate infantryman and adds new dimension to American Civil War history. Reproducing the experiences of the gray soldiers, the author shows how the patriots of the South fought against the military power of the North. He highlights the ragged reality of the Confederate army - the soldier's patchwork uniforms and uniquely independent spirit. He illustrates the varieties of weapons the soldiers used, including bayonets, shotguns, hunting rifles, and pistols. From the shrill of the Rebel Yell to the silence of defeat, Archambault presents and accurate representation of the everyday activities of a Confederate soldier - the perfect resource for living-history reenactors and all those who value our American heritage."
