More Civil War stuff: Nice Pants!

Posted 02-09-2010 at 02:20 PM by Sock Puppet

I got yet another follow-up email from my brother, who gave me this fun factoid.

My GGG Grandfather's unit, the 2nd Texas Mounted Rifles, is famous for having a captain of one company who was arguably the strangest dressed of the War. Gaze upon Captain Samuel Richardson, "Mr. Jaguar Skinned Trousers," and swoon:



Note that the holsters are of the same skin.

Not that I was ever interested in reenactments (LARPers ... :shudder: ), but I would never even consider it unless I got to wear jaguar-skin trousers.
