Do Women Love a Man in Uniform?

What is it that makes a woman admire a man in a military uniform? Is it the pride and self-confidence he conveys while serving his country? When the Civil War broke out, photography was a new technology and there were cameras everywhere, unfortunately they captured the horror of that brutal war. However, the photographers also captured the men who stood proudly wearing those uniforms, both Union and Confederate. If you look at antique photos of Generals William Sherman and Robert E. Lee, or photos of Ulysses S. Grant and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, they all show a posturing that was meant to convey confidence, probably to the enemy, but as it happens, just what studies say women appreciate and find attractive… confidence.
