Don Troiani, famous American military artist, produced this plate...



The plate depicts a soldier of the 18th Massachusetts Infantry early in the war.

Troiani wrote this:

"A soldier of the 18th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry wearing the full French Chasseur (Light Infantry) uniform. French Chasseur uniforms (10,000 sets were bought by the U.S. government) were issued to 3 regiments and possibly several others later on.

Although incredibly well made many of the uniforms were too small for the whole lot to be issued. Most were returned to storage by the
units, however some parts like the fatigue jackets and accoutrements were kept and used as late at the Gettysburg campaign. The French dark sky blue kersey (slate blue gray) trousers and leggings were issued to the 155th PV (after enlarging them!) and the talmas were cut up to make the 155th's Zouave jackets."

Is it a good rendition of the French Chasseur uniform?

The uniform in the plate is identical to the French Chasseur uniform?

Très beau cliché à tous points de vue! Un agrandissement de l'original aiderait à lire le numéro du bandeau du képi, et on saurait si c'est un bataillon ayant séjourné à Châlons.
