For the kids, paper soldiers, regardless of age:

Download (right click mouse in most browsers), print (letter size paper), study, rectangular cut, fold each half up and paste tops in groups.  If done correctly, each group of the 1" soldiers will form a pup-tent shape and stand alone.  The base may be scored with a thumbnail for added stability. Wads of paper may be used as ammunition or wargame rules, as desired.

 

 

See bottom of Lafayette page for another period.

When war came, the Louisiana Zouaves wore blue Zouave jackets and a red fez.  After their first action, they would remove their jackets in the field and fight in their red shirts.  Later the blue jacket was replaced with the so called butternut jacket.  Some believe that Confederate butternut was originally grey.  But age and prolonged exposure to light eventually turned a grey dye of that time to the brownish color that we often see in surviving artifacts, today.

 

The Louisiana Zouaves got their "Tiger" nickname from their bravery and tenacity coupled with their striped pantaloons made from matress canvas.  The red fez was quickly replaced by the more protective from the elements and practical straw hat in the field.
