Some websites (for museums, battlefields, other Color Guard units, and re-enactors groups) contain good uniform information. Some have restrictions which should be taken with a grain of salt, and should only be considered as a helpful guide.

As the SAR Color Guard, we seek to give an accurate historical impression, but do not require hand-sewn uniforms or other such restrictions.
