I've read two different diaries from men in the Fourth LA INF Battlion, and both made refrences to being "reoutfitted" a couple months prior to the battle of Chickamauga. My question is this. What shade of Grey would have been most likley issued to the Fourth? I know the mills in Tuscaloosa and Tullahoma were close by, but could they have received these supplies from elsewhere?
The Fourth LA Batt.(not to be mistaken for the Fourth LA Regiment) was in Col. C.C. Wilsons Brigade at Jackson, MS. They were also under his command at Chickamauga. As a side note apparently the North Louisiana boys did not think to highly of the boys from Gerogia as one solider wrote "them damn Georgia boys are the worst, always raising such a fuss so a feller cant sleep at night." Just a side note.
