General History

"Articles of War" pre-date the Civil War. Adopted by United States Congress in 1806, this collection of regulations was the predecessor of the "Uniform Code of Military Justice” of our modern military. The only difference in the “Articles of War for the Government of the Armies of the Confederate States” was substitution of "Confederate" for “United” states.
