I agree about the pics. Studying pics of POWs or dead on the field, is the only way to really see what they wore in the field, and as you say, yoiu see some interesting stuff. Some uniforms on the dead are well made uniforms with trim, and others, like that Colonel lying in front of Battery Robinet in Mississippi, if I remember correctly was just a shell jacket with no trim. It might not have even had any rank on it, I can't remember.
