When most people think about Zouave they think of Northern States and Louisiana. However, this if far from true. The Pre War Zouave craze had effected the militias in both the North and the South. Probably all pre war Southern states militias had at least a coupe of Zouave companies.

Before writing the book on the Confederate Navy, I had almost completed the one on the Confederate Zouaves, the drawings are with a rough outline and I should redo them, but the historical part was complete.
I just had to finish the chapter on Louisiana units, then I started the one on the Navy and gave up.
However there were many Zuave units and, at least in one case, they wore the particular uniform in 1863!
