Product Description

With the outbreak of hostilities in April of 1861, thousands of men would be called upon to leave the safety of their homes and go off to war. This would be a new experience; for many of these “citizen soldiers” it would be the first time they were away from their home towns. These new recruits would not only have to fight their fellow Americans, in many cases they would be facing their own relatives on the battlefield. Some men would carry muskets, others revolvers. Some would be firing cannons, while others waving swords. But there was one thing they all had in common, both the enlisted men and officers, they all carried canteens.

There are over two hundred and twenty five photographs in this totally revised 80 page book. Along with the different types of original canteens.....both Union and Confederate, there are also many period photographs taken during the war. This book will give the reader a rare opportunity to take a glimpse into the past to see what the soldier used and some of the battlefields he fought on. This is the soft-cover second edition, (front & rear covers in color, interior black & white). 

I have spent over a year on this Second Edition, meticulously redoing the original photographs along with adding many additional examples, and am very pleased with the outcome.  My other release with over 700 photographs, "Battle of Gettysburg - The Relics, Artifacts & Souvenirs", has also been revised and is available now both in color and black and white; I could combine both books so there would not be any additional shipping charges. In December, 2011, I received the highest rating available for the book in the monthly newsletter of The Lone Star Book Review (see below). Please feel free to ask any questions and I will gladly sign and personalize your copies upon request.....thanks for looking.
