Coming May 2, 2019


If clothes make the man, uniforms make the soldier. Join us  for an informative survey of the  varied uniforms worn by Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Presented by Leslie Jensen, curator of the Museum of West Point, we will explore the wide variety of dress and fatigue uniforms worn between 1861 and 1865. These uniforms varied greatly depending on locations, supply of cloth and state regulations which often differed from standard regulations. Access to captured stocks of blue Union uniforms also resulted in combinations of uniform pieces early in the war.
