Additional DescriptionMore Details

CS Regulation stated that they should be white, but by 1862 the federal blockades started to bite and made materials in short supply, leading to shirts made of different patterns and colours but most seem to keep the standard 1852 Federal Pattern. For the Union they were issued at a rate of 3 per year, although blue and red were issued to other state regiments and branch services.
