When the Civil War broke out in 1861, there was a huge difference between the economy of the Northern and Southern States. The North of the country was fairly industrialized, while the economy of the Southern States was based on agriculture. Thus, slaves forced into heavy labour on the plantations were the main source of income for their owners. The North of the country could no longer tolerate such a situation, which they saw as shameful. After the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 South Carolina withdrew from the Union, followed by Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
In 1861 the Southern states separated from the North and founded a new nation called the Confederate States of America (Confederacy), led by Jefferson Davis.
Welcome to the CivilWarTalk, a forum for questions and discussions about the American Civil War! The original Zouaves were native north African troops serving in the French Army in the 1830s.
Staged image of Zouaves (possibly the 5th New York) loading wounded men onto the ambulances. When the US flag was lowered in Nashville in June 1861 from the Capitol and the Confederate flag was raised, it was done by the Dunlap Zouaves.
The 4th Regiment Michigan Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Certainly some fancy military duds came out of the Civil War (emulating grand traditions of old European armies) ~ but still, who was responsible for all this! Even though at first the South seemed to be much stronger, after the defeat of the Confederate Army at Gettysburg, the North won the war.

Satterlee's (1847-1917) photo is probably of him in his uniform as Surgeon of the 84th Regiment of the New York State National Guard. I hate to admit I've always been curious about the whole Zouave thing (bit odd in North American theatre). The uniforms usually consisited of fez and turban, very baggy pants, a vest, a short jacket that was cut away from the top with only on button or clasp at the throat and a sash. This uniform consisted of a federal dark blue sack coat, dark blue chasseur trousers, tan gaiters, and a maroon zouave fez with a light blue tassle. They were so much extra weight on a march, so for those reasons they eventually fell out of favor with the infantry.
Unfortunately (or fortunately for some I guess), these units seem to have been caught in the middle of a military fashion crisis! Most of the pistols you see in early photos, especially in 1861, are photographer's props.

The uniforms were usually brightly colored and had much trim and braid and many brass buttons on them. These troops were well trained and desciplined and were famous for great feats on the battlefield, and often mischief and rowdiness off the battlefield. Elmer Ellsworth took his Chicago Zouave Cadets on a tour of North America, challenging militia units to drill competition. The 72nd Pennsylvania wore a modified Zouave uniform, with Chausseur pants and jackets with little fancy trim. By the end of the Civil War most Zouave uniforms had disappeared due to the Army not wanting to replace them.
There were however units that maintained the Zouave uniforms throughout the war, and actually were given Zouave uniforms to recognize the bravery of the unit. Zouaves disappeared at the end of the Civil War in the US, except for veteran's groups.
They continued on in the French Army until World War I when the ability to blend into the battlefield required more traditional green uniforms.
