The Outfit Modified PDF Print E-mail

I have always been interested in the uniform and equipment of the Confederate soldier.  While Union soldiers were commonly well equipped, the Confederate soldier had to learn to do as much as he could with as little as possible.  

Below is a chapter from the book "Detailed Minutiae of Soldier Life in the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865" by Carlton McCarthy.  The author, who fought as a private in the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War, describes the Confederate soldier’s outfit at the beginning of the war and how he learned to get by with just the bare necessities by the end of the war.  The book is available in the public domain.

CHAPTER VII of Recollections of a Private by Warren Lee Goss

The removal of the Army of the Potomac from its new base on the James, and the setting aside of McClellan from its command, has been a prolific source of discussion and recrimination. There is much that can be said both in favor of and against its removal, which a dispassionate man might assent to as pertinent and just. On one hand it is claimed that the unhealthy situation in which the army would be placed while inactive amid the low and marshy land on the north of the James during August and September, made its removal expedient. While on the other hand it is certain that the months following would be no more fatal than those which had preceded, and that the sanitary condition of the army would compare favorably with that of any other in the field. It is again urged that it was advisable to concentrate the military forces then in Virginia into one army.
