I found these two on Amazon and ordered both. Frederick P Todd was one of the original founders of the Company of Military Historians. H Charles McBarron is also one of the founders of the Company and this volume is a compilation of the series of uniform plates on the US Army which are excellent. The only drawback is that they are reproduced smaller than the originals, but are large enough for reference and painting.

I would recommend anything by Col Todd and even though some of the illustrations may be outdated because of a scarcity of information at the time of production, they are still useful.

They can be found here:

Those are two good finds, and inexpensive to boot!

I totally agree with your assessment of these founders of the Company of Military Historians. I treasure my large format copy of "Military Uniforms in America: Vol II Years of Growth, 1796-1851", by The Company of Military Historians, 1977.

Although my interest is mostly the War of 1812, I think it will be worthwhile to me to purchase "The American Soldier" for the four War of 1812 prints.

Many thanks for bringing this to our attention.

You're very welcome. I have all four of the Military Uniforms in America series of books and they are more than worthwhile.
