“We are entirely out of rations and ammunition. The former we need to feed our brave men, and the later to feed the enemy.” —Colonel Charles Jennison, First Brigade, First Division, Army of the Border, October 23, 1864.
American Civil War: Support Services of the Union Army highlights the Union military service departments so essential for the conduct of war and actual events that occurred during the American Civil War. The documented events are in the words of the Union military men that prosecuted the war.
Military support is no easy task whenever and wherever it occurs. The American Civil War was no exception. Support Services of the Union Army identifies the many accomplishments and sometimes failures of the support rendered to the men who endured this horrific conflict between the North and South. You will marvel at the ingenuity and tenacity that kept the supply lines moving using horses, mules, oxen, trains, and ships over the often-times rugged and unfamiliar terrain and treacherous waters.
