Mr. Ron Field of Gloucestershire, England, will be spending a week in the military collection in mid-April examining material on the American Civil War. Ron is a recognized authority on the uniforms of the Civil War, and his most recent book, Bluejackets, dealt with the uniforms of the Union navy between 1861 and 1865. During his time in the military collection, he will examine the Todd albums on northern states during the war as he has been commissioned by Schiffer to write a book on the early uniforms of the Union army.
