Troops marched off into battle in brightly colored uniforms, beneath banners bravely snapping to the sound of stirring martial music. Dashing, plumed cavaliers, like confederate J. E. B. Stuart, launched during cavalry raids behind enemy lines. In battle, opposing lines of infantry stood in neat rows, only a few yards apart, blazing away at each other, volley after volley. And in the end, it was the massesd charge of fixed bayonets that was to decide the day. ; 690 pages
