Green uniforms were not too popular during the Civil War, but a few Union and Confederate units wore them. Can we come up the the names of a few?

The Muscogee Rifles of Georgia wore green frock coats and green trousers as a militia company, but I do not know if they replaced their green militia uniforms prior to going off to war.

Washington Rifles (New York State) wore uniforms trimmed with green, I am not sure when they switched to blue.
