The War of 1812 was the true making of the regular regiments and corps of the US Army. Three years' fighting against Britain saw the White House burned down, but also the bloody repulse of the redcoats, then the best infantry in the world, on a number of battlefields. The small constabulary force which entered the war - ill-led, ill-supported, and with an uncertain system of supply - ended it as a professional army with a system of command and services equal to any. This meticulous history of the uniforms of the American regulars is illustrated with many previously unseen paintings and photographs.

About the Author:

James L Kochan spent nearly two decades as a museum director and curator, principally with the US National Park Service and Army Museum System, and most recently at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate. He also formed his own antiques business and historical consultancy, including film and television technical advisory work, which is based at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. The co-author of Don Troiani's Soldiers in America, 1754-1865, he has written innumerable articles and has organized important exhibitions, including 'Treasures from Mount Vernon: George Washington Revealed'. David Rickman is the exhibits co-ordinator for the US State Parks System. He is also a freelance illustrator specializing in historical and ethnographic subjects. His works are in the collections of the National Park Service, Parks Canada and various other museums and historic sites. The son of a US Navy aviator, he grew up in California and has lived in Japan. He now lives in Wilmington, Delaware with his wife, Deborah.
