Found this

If your looking for fully German regiments they were mostly from around the midwest and would dress like other western union regiments (Hardee Hat, long jacket). German companies would usually dress like their respective regiment. This Texen regiment had many Germans in it.

I know one Union regiment which consisted of German soldiers (also other ethnicities) , but I think they didnt fight in First Manassas. Their name was 24th Illinois Volunteer Infantry regiment. From this picture im judging they wore mostly round hats and probably used regular Union uniform.
