Re: [Uniforms] 12th virginia cavalry uniform

They appear to have copied the illustration in Gregory Urwinís book The United States Cavalry, which discusses the green sprig in the hats. The Book, Don Troianiís Regiments & Uniforms of the Civil War has a article on the uniform of this Regiment as well, but does not show the same uniform.
This book tells of the 1864 issue to Company F of 14 gray jackets and 12 black jackets,14 pairs of gray trousers, 7 light blue trousers and 4 dark blue trousers.
