Lazy Jacks Mess has done a great job in sharing a large amount of information on period uniforms. There is one particular piece that I found of interest and applies to the war in the Trans-Mississippi Department: Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms. VERY informative and interesting article. Here are the three pieces:

Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 1
Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 2
Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 3

I strongly suggest checking out several of their articles.


  1. Thank you for this interesting post and great blog; I will be able to spend many happy hours investigating all your links!

  2. Hope to see you often! Welcome and thank you.
