Infantry Sgt for the ANV. Tan Jean wool commutation jacket, what color stripes? Black or light blue. Regiment was originally a militia unit before the start or the war. Opinions?

Stopped in Gettysburg last week and got black stripes from the Maryland Sutler.
Good for you Greg. VA Manuf.06 was absolutely correct. Black stripes by mid war was common even in some units that originally had blue stripes. Actually if in doubt and you can't document otherwise, you can't go wrong with Black Stripes for ANV for most of the War.
