Wounded Soldiers in Zouave Uniform
The name "Zouave" is taken from French light infantry regiments in the 1800s who wore distinctive uniforms. In the US Civil War some soldiers, mostly volunteer and on each side of the conflict, called themselves Zouaves and wore similar uniforms. This photograph, of unknown date, shows a wounded Zouave.
