"This tells the story of imported Confederate uniforms, documenting in color photographs every known uniform made by Peter Tait Company of Limerick, Island. The 132 photos offer different perspectives and close-ups showing construction details. There are also images of every button used on Tait jackets. The text includes specifics about how many uniforms were delivered to the Confederacy and where they saw service. The provenance of each jacket is included along with the soldier's service record. This study documents Ireland's and Great Britain's great contribution to the South's armies in the form of the Confederacy's one truly universal uniform"--P.  of cover.
