I recently watched a video of the 2nd South Carolina String Band playing Dixie . At the start of the video there is footage from a reenactment and a Confederate officer in a green coat . In Troiani's "Band of Brothers" print of Culp's Hill some members of the 1st Maryland Battalion appear to be wearing green uniforms . Finally , I took this image of a reenactor at Gettysburg wearing what I thought was a green shirt . He assured me that he had dyed it himself and that it was NOT green . This makes me wonder if my color perception is off concerning green . I am familiar with the early war Clinch Rifles green uniform but have wondered about seeing green or greenish Confederate uniforms in these other cases . Is it possible some grays could fade to a green color or is it my color perception ?
