14th New York Vols. (The Brookly Chasseurs), Guerre de Sécession 1861–1865

15 mm Heritage Miniatures painted in the colourful uniform of the 14th New York Volunteers (Brooklyn Chasseurs). The Brocklyn Chasseurs are mounted on 25 × 22 mm infantry stands compatible avec Fire and Fury. The uniform has been painted correctly, but there should be a dark blue band around the red képi.

The 14th Brooklyn was formed on 5 Juillet 1847 as the 14th Regiment New York State Militia (N.Y.S.M.). En 1860, le régiment adopted un uniforme de chasseurs à la française similar in style to that worn by Colonel Ellsworth's 19th Illinois Volunteer Infantry (Ellsworth Zouave Cadets). The 14th New York was officially mustered into the Union Army on 23 Mai 1861 as the 84th New York Volunteer Infantry. During its three-year enlistment, the 14th NY participated in the major campagnes sur le théâtre militaire de l'est. The 84th New York was mustered out on 6 Juin 1864, shortly after the Bataille de Spotsylvania Court House

Uniforme

  • dark blue Chasseur jacket avec red shirt false front
    • officiers portaient l'uniforme réguliaire ou frock coat
  • dark blue cuffs avec red trim
  • red trefoil epaulettes
  • écharpe rouge
  • pantalon rouge (avec bande d'or pour officiers)
  • guêtres blanches
  • képi rouge avec dark blue band

L'uniforme des chasseurs à la française was often confused by contemporary observers, who considered the 14th New York a Zouave regiment. Unlike other regiments, the 14th New York maintained the colourful chasseur uniform throughout its three-year term of enlistment in the Union Army.
