    Early in the war, the blended/jean stuff was considered extremely low class, suitable for blacks and Irish. I don't know how early attitudes began to change from necessity.

    More on the topic at hand, yesterday I attended a lecture by Mr. Bob Zeller entitled "The Grand Review: Discoveries and Explorations in Civil War Photography" and it included a number of colorized photos original to the war. Very cool.

    I take it we're not talking about new digitizations but rather original coloring?

    It appears that this thread is specifically for the application of digital colour to the original plates. Hand-colouring (or tinting) was usually much more subtle and applied to only certain areas of the image. The cheeks, lips and hair were often coloured, alongside physical items such as gold braiding, watch-chains and buttons. Clothing itself was rarely done unless the uniform required something more elaborate, you can probably hazard a guess as to what kind of regiment would desire for their uniforms to be hand coloured (it begins with 'Z'!).
