Union Iron Brigade in Gaiters Tearing Cartridge

Although it is commonly believed that the western “Iron Brigade” wore distinctive dress, the truth is that this unit made up of midwestern regiments simply wore the same uniform of the regular U.S. Army of the period. The Hardee pattern felt hat with regimental number and company letters in brass, the nine-button wool frock coat with light blue piping for infantry, sky blue kersey trousers, and white gaiters was the prescribed uniform of the regulars. This was partly because General John Gibbon, a regular army officer from North Carolina who chose to stay with the Union, was a stickler for discipline and dress.
