Ok so far my new hard drive appears to be working. So what do forum members think of the uniforms shown in this plate? Were caps common in the 5th Texas Infantry?

Text from Edward S. Milligan and art work from James T. Jones. The text claims they are left to right:
Lieutenant Colonel J.B. Robertson, Lieutenant B. Pugh Fowley, color bearer in Richmond gray blouse, Meiers M. Felder in Georgia double-tongue buckle.

I think we've discussed this uniform plate before in another thread, but don't remember where exactly. Anyway, these are the photos it's based on:
