Hi,

does anybody know of a graphic reference to the rank-system for US Marine Corps uniforms during the Civil War period? In what way did they differ from army regulation/design?
Is it true that chevrons badges where worn "upside down" on Marine uniforms? What colour where they made off? It is not really my period of interest but I still would like to find out more.
So far I only got unreliable sources. May be somebody can help.
Regards
Wolfgang
