the regiment had new light blue pants
letter, Andrew Brown to his father and sister, 3 March 1863, camp near Falmouth VA
he had received boots, which were too large for marching ('when too big the[y] slip up and down and take the skin off'), but when he added a pair of insoles from old shoes they fit well
he stockings were all right
Jim McCullough wanted them to tell his wife where they got the boots, so she could get him a pair also
