Dad's only book
The Company of Military Historians, Military uniforms in America: the first thirty years, index to the plates, published in 1979. 80 pages. Since the Company of Military Historians publishes collections of prints of soldiers from all sides in the Revolutionary & Civil Wars, drawn as historically accurate as possible in their uniforms, ordinance, & field gear, dad's book may have been a companion to the art folios. I've never seen it. It must have been in his library, probably with a collection of CMH folios, & should be in my sister's hands now that dad's second wife passed away. It's a family treasure, for my niece & nephews.
