        Epaulettes, 1861 | A State Divided

        Chapman Coleman Todd was only 13 years old when he joined the United States Navy. These epaulettes were part of his uniform. Todd was in the Navy for nearly 40 years. During the Civil War, the Navy was very important to the Union. They blocked ports, keeping supplies from reaching the South. One major change in the Navy that Todd would have seen was going from sails to steam-powered ironclad ships.

        This resource is part of the A State Divided: Exploring the Civil War Through Images collection.
