With your crayons and markers you'll have no trouble learning exactly what the soldiers from both North and South wore during the Civil War. Peter Copeland, historical artist, has drawn 21 Confederate uniforms and 24 Union uniforms for this coloring book. Here are the men from many different states and ranks (privates, volunteers, captains, a drummer boy, a mule driver, corporals and others) as well as several historical figures—General Robert E. Lee, 1863; Dr. Mary Walker, woman nurse, 1865; Major General Ulysses S. Grant, 1865; Admiral David Farragut, 1865. Each illustration is accompanied by a full caption that describes the authentic colors for the uniform. All 45 uniforms are shown in full color on the covers.
