"GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" I have wondered why the rank insignia of the former state army, marine, and navy rank insignia of the Confederate States of America has not been added to the World Rank Insignia? All three branches wore rank insignia for their officers that was quite different from the Union Forces, except they shared similiar ranks for their enlisted (Corporals and Sergeants). Re-enactment of the U.S. Civil War, also known as the War Between the States, is still quite popular in the U.S. and have seen pictures of re-enactors in the UK also wearing the uniforms of the Union and the Confederacy. Thank you all! Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California smilies-10

Hi Sarge Booker
Q1: Have you somewhere pictures of these insignias used by the confederate armyes?
Q2: Do you think it is possible too have those insignias posted or sent too me in e:mail?

Greetings from one very interested...

Confederates States Army 1861-1865

"GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" Althought some show colours other than black for medical officers; buff for Generals and their Staff; light blue for Infantry; red for Artillery, and yellow for Cavalry - I have visted the various Confederate Museums in Richmond, Virginia as well as in Charleston, South and New Orleans, Louisiana - I never saw any uniform on display or even a pre-1960s print showing any other colours? Confederate States of America Uniform Regulations of 1863 show two different types of kepis, one with a red, light blue, dark blue, or yellow top and dark blue band, saw very few like these, most I have seen had grey tops and black, light-blue, red, and yellow bands. Many soldiers wore a slouch hat in brown or light grey while the Union officers wore a black slouch hat. The best preserved uniforms are those of Confederate Surgeons because doctors were less likely to be exposed to actual combat and had more money to buy better uniforms. Officers like General P.G.T. Beauregard had lots of little old ladies sewing circles in New Orleans sewing beautiful uniforms for Louisiana's favourite son! General Robert E. Lee had a quality uniform, althought less elaborate, more simple. Many Confederates wore butter-nut colour cloth kepis and uniforms toward the end of the war. J.E.B. Stuart wore his own design of a Cavalry uniform; by the way, Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida is named after that Comfederate General, believe it or not? smilies-06 Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California

Hi all,
There are a couple of incorrect things on that page for the CSN, for instance the rank of master wore a narrow stripe, and the petty officers did not use the "federal" eagle. Here is a page with more CSN insignia:

The text of the CSN uniform regulations is available at:

Best regards,
