American Civil War in the Indian Territory is one of the titles in Osprey Publishing's Men-at-Arms series. All titles in the series are well-researched and contain full-colour plates of the uniforms or clothing worn by military forces of the past and present. In this title, the author and illustrator focus on the Aboriginal People of the Southeast who fought alongside the Confederate and Union armies during the United States Civil War. The final section of the book includes a detailed description of each plate noting the sources consulted. The illustrator made effective use of museum collections, contemporary paintings and drawings, and eyewitness accounts. Each book in the series is highly recommended for their authentic illustrations.
