5th New Hampshire Uniforms
While studying a photo of the 5th NHV I noticed two things I have a question about. First, some soldiers were wearing dark blue trowsers. I thought the dark blues were only for the Regular Army? I have also seen them on some Pennsylvania troops. And lastly I noticed an enlisted man wearing what looks like a New York state jacket. It had the epulates and all the trim. Unless there was a NY soldier visiting the 5th I have to assume that this man in question was in the ranks of the 5th NHV.
Makes me go HMMMMMM......
By the way, the pic is the one of the New Hampshire boys building the bridge over the Chickahominy.
