    I can't believe I haven't seen this yet. The town looks amazing and the attention to detail is impressive! If you guys ever need photos or are unsure of anything I live in Shepherdstown and could help out if needed. I'm a good photographer and could supply what you need... just let me know.

    Edit: Also no pressure at all as you guys have a schedule and priorities but do you have a rough timetable on this map being released?

    Please link to some written sources for that.

    Our sources just mention the red trim.
    The quartermaster reports for the 11th MS mentioned: "with red trim on the collar and cuffs, and eight red chest bars with buttons at each end". Thats how the regiment was fitted.
    The Mississippi regulation for the militia and army mentioned "Red for Infantry" as trim.

    The black and white pictures are no evidences, because you can't see the difference between black and dark red in such pictures.
    This is correct about them wearing red trims, as the quartermaster also reports in harpers ferry the "mississippians all clamoring for rifles to replace their outdated muskets" in harper's ferry as the 11thMS stood soldierly amongst the others in their red trimmed uniforms.
