    If possible, I would love to see more uniform variation for the 1st Delaware. Unlike most other Union states, Delaware did not supply uniforms, they were private purchase or homemade, much like the southern "Commutation system". You can see a wide variety of clothing on the famous picture of the 1st DE Color guard after Antietam.

    You can see in the picture that the from left to right they wear a 1) Private purchase sack coat, 2) Civilian coat 3) civilian sack coat 4) issue or private purchase frock 5) private purchase sack coat and 6) the trimmed collar frock coat seen below. They also wear a mixture of forage caps and kepis.

    Interestingly, the first Delaware had 2 zouave companies who fought at Antietam. You’ll see it even mentioned in the regimental history below. The zouaves came under particularly heavy fire when hitting the sunken road, the same action which earned Lt. Charles R. Tanner his Medal of Honor. They could be sprinkled in like some of the other mixed Zouaves/line regiments already in game. It would add even more variety to the union side.

    Suggestion to update the 23rd NY flag to better represent the historically accurate one. (Can't find a picture anywhere we found this description)

    I believe there is a large update arriving at some point pertaining to the historical accuracy of the flags.

    While I can't speak for the 51st PA flag in particular I can say that we're currently working towards a massive flag-oriented update in the not too distant future.

    There is a minimum number of posts required before users can create a thread.
