I remember I've seen an amazing picture about the Zouaves, with a man whose the arm was dismembered  :-X

45th Virginia Infantry Regiment, my real life unit... 21st Virginia Ify. Reg. Co. K "Chalk Level Greys" that we portray for their heroic engagement at Culp's Hill on July 2nd, 1863 and at 2nd Kernstown under Gordon... 21st Mississippi, Barksdale's for their heroic efforts from Pitzer's woods & the Trostle Farm, Gettysburg... 1st Tennessee, "Co. Aytch" who took part in engagements in both theatres... most importantly, 57th Virginia Ify. Reg. Armistead's Brigade, "Botetourt Guards" 3pm, July 3rd, 1863 engaged in "Pickett's Charge" with less than 5,000 survivors which my GGGrandad was one of them.
In real life, proud soldier of the 45th VA Iny. Reg. & Old Possum Mess, Gettysburg, PA

My favorite Regiment and/or Brigade would be the Iron Brigade or otherwise known as the Blackhat Brigade but my second favorite would be followed the Irish Brigade

I have multiple favorites. To start off, the 49th Indiana Infantry Regiment, the 7th Tennessee Cavalry (CSA), 3rd Tennessee Mounted Infantry (Union), the 1st Tennessee Infantry (CSA) (Archer's Brigade), the 154th Senior Tennessee Infantry, and the 24th Mississippi Infantry.

49th IN- Direct ancestor, James M. Cummins, mortally wounded at Chickasaw Bayou.
7th TN - Forrest's own regiment he served and armed with himself
3rd TN - Direct ancestory, James J. Voyles, enlisted and survived
1st TN - Veteran regiment that held its own against the Iron Brigade at Gettysburg for a while despite being out numbered / out flanked
154th TN - Veteran, pre-war militia regiment that was raised in my home town. Pre-war militia, a history that made them better trained and equipped than most
24th MS - Direct ancestor, James Long, KIA(?) at Corinth, MS in 1862
