Shoemaking and Tailoring in Civil War Winter Quarters
A number of shoemakers in the different regiments, seventeen I think, were encouraged to send home--and in some instances were given leave to go--for their tools, and were put to work repairing shoes, being exempted from guard and other routine camp duty, but ready to fall in with their commands on any call to arms.
The shoe-shops were a separate camp of tents, near brigade headquarters and under our immediate supervision, guarded by sentinels, and no person was allowed to visit them or to carry his shoes to be mended without a pass and order from his company and regimental commanders, approved by the adjutant or inspector general.

His knowledge of post-medieval shoemaking technologies, particularly with regards to such ancient experts such as Garsault, is unequalled, and his knowledge of medieval and pre-medieval shoemaking technologies is well above most.
Just as a note, as there is often a wide divergence between the terms used by modern shoemakers and the terms used by modern archeologists and calceologists.
We know very few of the terms used by medieval shoemakers, and fewer still those terms used by English shoemakers (since this document is in English).

SEABROOK - Farming, fishing and shoemaking, the foundation of Seabrook’s economy for decades, is the focus of a new slide show by town historian Eric Small.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of railroads in the formation of capital for the initial industrialization of shoemaking in New England prior to the Civil War.
Although the role of railroads in the industrialization of the United States has been widely discussed, including their role in consolidating capital resources for their own use, the manner in which industrialization has generally been discussed casts less attention on the role played by railroads in capital formation for the industrialization of other industries.
It is precisely this type of course, and capital formation for shoemaking as an unintended consequence of railroad building, that this paper seeks to address.

Small was to have included shoemaking in his slide show last year on local livelihoods, but in researching the topic he realized it needed a night all its own.
Most Seabrook residents in the late 1800s were employed at one time or another making shoes, either for family use, as jobbers for the mills, or by the major manufacturers themselves, Small explained.
