31368 Confederate Texas Brigade Infantry Advancing at Right Shoulder No.2

W. Britains

This well uniformed soldier appears as he might have been dressed at the battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) in 1862. A series of photographs of the 1st Texas encamped before the battle shows soldiers wearing gray single breasted frock coats trimmed in black. This man wears a dark forage cap, with brass lettering on the top. Both North and South imported massive amounts of military goods from England during the war, and this soldier carries a British army pattern knapsack and a Confederate manufactured tin drum canteen.
