The Arms & Equipment in the Civil War Message Board



I am researching a story I'm writing, and would like to bounce a few questions about weapons used by Union officers (calvary(?), scout) and the waterproofing thereof.

Also have some questions regarding the way the Union army operated/was organized just after the close of the war, for reality checking.

If anyone here would be willing to help me out, I'd appreciate it. Please drop me an email.
