Anthony F. Gero has an article, New Observations of the 1861 Uniforms, Equipage, and Flags of the Volunteer Companies in the District of Columbia's Militia. in the Spring 2021 issue of Military Collector & Historians Journal. When Col. Fredrick P. Todd wrote his well-respected American Military Equipage 1851-1872 there was limited information about the uniforms of the District of Columbia militia uniforms before and at the start of the Civil War. Anthony Gero has corrected this with his article. Thanks to Mr. Gero we now have a much more detail understanding of their uniforms.
