About this product
- DescriptionThis volume in the popular G.I. series illustrates a much-neglected aspect of American military history - the U.S. Army artillerymen, named redlegs after the red stripes on their trousers. The photographs, most of them rarely seen in other sources, range from the Civil War and the campaigns against the American Indians through to the Spanish-American War. Artillery was a vital arm and proved its worth in all of these diverse theatres of war; artillerymen served as part of mobile columns, in sieges and blockades, and as garrisons in remote frontier forts. This handy guide includes superb images and descriptive captions detailing the appearance of the men, their uniforms and equipment, and the ordnance used over the years.
- Author BiographyJOHN P. LANGELLIER is the author of several publications on the life and times of the U.S. soldier including Billy Yank: The Uniform of the Union Army, 1861-1865 and Terrible Swift Sword: Union Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry, 1861-1865.
