Non-Commissioned Officers are to purchase additional jackets/coats for
their impression and sew on their appropriate rank insignia. Patches are
available at most sutlers for ranks, but some, especially Confederate,
impressions may be best to sew individual stripes. Chevrons are to be
sky or light blue with an option of black for Confederate impressions. All Non-Commissioned
Officers are to purchase additional trousers for their impressions.
Union trousers are to have ½ inch stripes for Corporals, and 1 ½ inch
stripes for ranks of Sergeant to Sergeant-Major. Confederate trousers
may, if the wearer desires, have 1 ¼ inch leg stripes for the ranks of
Sergeant and above. Leg stripes are to be a dark blue color, though Confederate impressions may have black leg stripes, or omit leg stripes all together.
