… for Infantry Soldiers During the American Civil War.

Of possible interest?

"This book will be of particular interest to all those who study the American Civil War, since it details, using text and diagrams, the drills of the ordinary infantryman on both sides of the conflict. The book confines itself to the drills of the foot soldier, as they appear in the W J Hardee and Silas Casey texts. There are, to be clear, few differences between these drills, but this makes the book authentically useful from a Confederate and Union Army perspective, as these procedures were applied throughout the war. Containing illustrations original to each edition, this text has been enhanced by the inclusion of the management and cleaning guide for the 1863 pattern Springfield Rifle Musket which includes useful and interesting illustrations of the component parts of the weapon. This is a useful book for modellers, wargamers, reenactors, television and film companies, professional and amateur theatrical companies, and for parades and other events"

I'd be a lot more interested if you couldn't get all of them on download for nothing! ;o)

Considering that Casey's Rules were hardly used by the Confederates, (Most of them used Gilhams for the first half of the war and then later on those that still were using them switched over to Hardees), I think this book is a nice reference piece but that's about it.
