"The U.S. Army in the West, 1870-1880, "Douglas C. McChristian
describes the development of army uniforms, equipment, and small
arms during a pivotal decade of experimentation and against the
backdrop of a highly influential military operation-the Indian
campaigns in the West.
McChristian discusses the evolution of military clothing,
equipment, and arms throughout the decade and fully describes each
type of item and its modifications. Drawing much new information
from the records of the Ordnance and Quartermaster departments, he
also adds the human perspective with excerpts from previously
unpublished 1875 field reports.
Lavishly illustrated with more than two hundred photographs
gathered from public and private collections across the nation,
this book is an invaluable reference for collectors, curators, and
students of militaria and of the colorful frontier era.
