War of 1812 - Two More Units Started

Over the weekend, in addition to spending all day Sunday playing Frost Grave, I managed to get some work done on my War of 1812 project. I wont get anything else done till Thursday now as I will be away with work for a couple of days in Christchurch, so here are two elements of each of the US 22nd Infantry Regiment and the 4th Maryland Volunteer Infantry Regiment

The first three images are the command element and flank company of the 4th Maryland, wearing dark blue trousers rather than the white, and with a light blue "turban" instead of the red of the 5th. The flag is just picked at random from the web as I liked the look of it!

And the next three photos are the command element and a centre company of the US 22nd Infantry Regiment, uniformed as per several references in a light brown jacket faced green, and blue trousers. The guy pointing and the standard bearer have two white epaulettes, denoting the rank of sergeant - at this time, standard bearers in the US Army were NCO's rather than commissioned officers......
