In reviewing my ANV GGGF's pretty extensive NA file, I was surprised to see how many times he was issued clothing during the war. Kind of puts a damper on the myth of the ragged Confederate. Based on my reading, it seems the ANV was probably it's raggediest (is that a word?) during the Maryland Campaign in 1862 and that was not from a lack of supply but more to the constant fighting since June that had precluded opportunities to issue new clothing.
