American Civil War Armies #5 - Volunteer Militia. Uniformed volunteer units were raised by individuals, usually from an area's social Úlite who had enough spare money and time to spend on such enthusiasms.

Click to EnlargeAmerican Civil War Armies #5 - Volunteer Militia. Before the Civil War the United States had a flourishing network of uniformed volunteer militia, which was made up of virtually the whole male population. Uniformed volunteer units were raised by individuals, usually from an area's social Úlite who had enough spare money and time to spend on such enthusiasms. They voted on their unit designation, their officers and non-commissioned officers, their unit rules, and their uniform. A unit could also apply to its state to be taken on to the militia muster rolls, which meant that the state would supply its weapons. The uniformed units were generally most noted for their 'fancy dress'; but the did also help to bring the country closer together - they spent a great deal of time visiting each other's towns and participating in joint drills and parades. Many future leaders learned their skills in these ranks, and volunteer militia units formed the core of many fighting units on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. With the help of numerous photographs and illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Ron Volstad, Philip Katcher does a fine job of detailing the uniforms of the volunteer militia of the American Civil War.
