Camouflage has long been used to hide and protect military vehicles, guns, ships, aircraft, and buildings, as well as soldiers and their positions. Vehicle camouflage began with paint, with limited effectiveness. Other methods for hiding stationary land vehicles have included covering them with improvised materials like blankets, tarpaulins, vegetation, nets, screens, and soft covers. Camouflage textile patterns have been developed to suit the needs of the combat gear to the battlegrounds. Woodlands, snow, and desert all require different camouflage to help military personnel remain undetected.
Starting with the Revolutionary War, the National Archives holds military records including historical, personal, and official correspondence regarding military uniforms and equipment designs.
