I know there are quite a few of you out there who are up on the civil war so can anyone give me a discription of the uniform worn by the 10th New Hampshire Zouaves. Or better still a colour picture or black and white.

Hi, General,

Found this in an online catalog. Claims to be of an officer of the 10th NH, but looks like sergeant wering a standard Yank uniform.

Not uniforms, but...

http://www.usgennet.org/usa/nh/topic/ci ... 0threg.htm

http://www.civilwar-photos.com/unitsd.html

and this source has no NH Zouaves listed.

And this one is NOT NH, but you can buy this uniform CHEAP.

They were tasteless and ugly.....Blue as I recall.....They should have been yellow.....Truly hideous uniforms, unlike the more tasteful Gray ones and Butternut ones worn by the gallant men of the South.....

While it is easy to confuse that yellow stripe that runs down the back of most yankees with the colors of their uniforms, Osprey's Men at Arms says that the 10th New Hampshire wore regulation uniforms.

Check it out for yourself:

Hope that helps you out.

Mark, Thank you very much I think that settles it. In Chancellorsville by HPS they are down as a zouave regiment.
Do you have Chancellorsville?
