....finding one from the Mexican War period is going to be really tough.
I agree, I have been looking for quite some time now and I have only been able to find vauge references to the shirts this regiment used as being only red shirts, they dont describe if they had pockets or buttons etc. The Print form the National Guard Heritage Series shows them wearing shirts which seem to have some kind of button pattern however I dont know if that ws just artistic license or if there was some piece of into out there that substabiated it. I have alos been trying to study shirts made around the same period and earlier, to see if I can gleen and info them those.
Thanks again for your help, if anyone has any more infor please feel free to contact me email@example.com
