    References for Both Yank and Reb.

    So I've known about THIS page for some time.

    But I figured I'd release it for community consumption. Please note that when using the references in this site, to make sure you keep your reading and usage of the information to the period. Anything before 1862 is good. Nothing after 1862 should be ignored.

    Enjoy the references.

    Respectfully,
    Powell.

    Nice job man! I know a fair bit about Civil War Infantry Tactics and how they fought but to have the actual manuals from freaking WEST POINT in my computer will help me learn new ways to kill my enemies. Thanks man!

    Thanks for the link.

    I do think their way of describing a book is rather strange.
    Instead of the usual Name of author and year of publication. It use part of the title and year of printing.

    Both "1862 Infantry Tactics" and "1863 Infantry Tactics" are just different prints of Casey's.

    Similar there are a number of different pirate prints of Hardee's 1855 drill book.

    More books is naturally a good thing, but some important books are missing. Like "US infantry tactics 61" and I can't find Gilhams...

    Also many of the books are not official army production and some are even British...



    Personally I prefer to use http://www.zipcon.net/~silas/links.htm

    Much more clear who wrote a book and when without the need to open the file. And it got more of the relevant drill books.

    Off cause in the long run, it really don't matter if one use Hardee, hardee revised, Casey or Gilhams... since the only difference is in the manual of arms... something we got no control over...
