Union and Confederate Armies
The Union Army's official uniform was blue everything except the shoes, which were black. African Americans fought for the Union, too. Most soldiers on this side were farmers and immigrants.
The Confederate Army's uniform was grey shirts, grey jackets, and light blue pants. The men who fought for this side were slave owners.
