Probably some of you Civil War buffs already know this but the color combinations on the uniforms denoted what type of unit the wearer belonged too.

For instance when AE arrives at Baker's you see his tunic & cap. Gray tunic has yellow cuffs and collar, cap has yellow ribbon, that is cavalry markings. Jackson/Bill Carson has same when he shows up in the Carriage of the Spirits sequence.

During the retreat out of Santa Fe you see gray & sky blue which denotes infantry. You also see gray & red which denotes artillery units.

The dying private that Blondie gets the poncho from is an artillery private.

green on a uniform denoted medical units, and you see this when the captian at the bridge battle is assisted by medical personel.

Carlo Simi and crew did a pretty good job.

The crew certainly went to quite a lot of trouble to get most of the Civil War details correct. The insignia (color/form) of the "artillery" captain (Aldo Giuffre) are also correct (trouser stripe, shoulder straps, crossed cannons on the hat etc).

I've already seen it somewhere, but forgot where, so I'm glad you pointed it out again. ;)



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
