1864 Shoulder Straps for Officers


Recommended Posts

"GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" The 1864 "Illustrated Catalogue of Arms & Goods" by Schuyler, Hartley & Graham showed some really fine line drawings of the shoulder straps for officers which indicated their ranks from Second Lieutenant to General-in-Chief, the latter was called Lieutenant General when full Generaql with four stars was created by the U.S. Congress for U.S. Grant. Here are some of the pages of those wonderful drawings. ENJOY! thumbsup.gif
