The original photographs were commissioned in 1866 by Montgomery Meigs, Quartermaster General of the U.S. Army. Known as 'the army behind the army,' the Quartermaster Corps is the army’s oldest logistical branch. It is charged with clothing, transporting, and sustaining large field armies far away from their base camps. Meigs understood the historical value of permanently recording the clothing and personal accouterments worn by soldiers and officers during the war. Oliver H. Willard's original photographs are kept at The Met Museum in New York and at the Quartermaster Museum in Fort Lee, Virginia.
