The United States Military personnel wore calf high boots in the War in the year 1812. Then in the 1820′s and on wards to the American Civil War they wore boots that went to the ankles. These boots had no left or right feet and so these boots when new were very uncomfortable and most personnel suffered from blisters after having to wear these shoes. These were later changed in the 1880′s when personnel got more comfortable boots to wear.
