I recently saw a repro of the US Field Manual for Engineers at a sutler. I can't remember the name of the manual or the sutler.

Does anyone know of to what I am referring and a possible source? Sorry to be so vague. I think it was actually written by Major James Duane. Ironic question, huh?

You may also find the online texts here of some interest in this area of study:


That website is a tremendous resource that is probably under-utilized by reenactors.

I ran across that site last night. It definitely is worth a longer look.
