Actually the photos in Crawford's book were the very ones I referred to in an earlier posting. With 1-2 EM in short jackets I presume private acquisition but with several...thus my thought it was an issue jacket.
Yes, Cass' Regiment, also Stockton's, then the 16th (and for some, initially 1st Lancers). Those lads must have had identity issues for a while.
Thanks for your help. I reserve the right, if I may, to contact you again on Eastern theater Michigan stuff, it is a strong interest. Your help is greatly appreciated.
