What is your favourite uniform from the American Civil War?

(This is a thread for all the fashion conscious soldiers who like to look nice when they dispatch of their enemies)

Please put the regiments name and a picture that clearly defines that regiments uniform in your post.

For those struggling to find images of there chosen regiment click on this link http://www.historicalartprints.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=58 and then scroll down to where it says related products, there is a whole stockpile of regimental uniforms there.

Yes I realize they're all from New York. I can't find proper pics of the Irish Zouaves or the CSA's Polish Legion. Nor can I find a photo of the 28th Mass.
