By Philip Katcher

For common George B. McClellan, the dejected Union troops who poured into Washington clean from defeat at Bull Run on Monday, July 22, 1861, have been to supply the uncooked fabric which he might educate, equip, manage and eventually remodel from a trifling mob into a good combating strength. In October 1861, the military of the Potomac formally got here into being. This unique quantity from an analogous group of writer Philip Katcher and artist Michael Youens who produced Men-at-Arms 37, the military of Northern Virginia, explores how this transition took place, with a selected emphasis on guns, uniforms and equipment.
