If you are knowledgable about military style dress in the antebellum period, and you are interested in writing a short entry on how that influenced men's and boy's style at the time, please contact Alexandra Kindell. I am working on a social history focused encyclopedia, and this would be an interesting connection between military and civilian cultures.
