These were taken purely to research the uniforms and equipment of South Carolinian enlisted infantrymen/volunteers.
The first series shows uniforms and equipment.
The second part shows period photographs of soldiers, along with some background.

If you have trouble reading some of the descriptions, just ask me. I know the pictures aren't of the highest quality, but they have definitely given me some ideas on how to improve my impression.
