Alamutcha Infantry Uniform

13TH MISSISSIPPI INFANTRY REGIMENT

The provenance here is missing, and the Alamutchas of Lauderdale County were only Company A until the 1862 reorganization (when they became Company E until the war ended) but I like the tricorn hat with the star.

Have no idea whether this uniform is accurate, but since the Confederates often identified themselves with the soldiers and civilians of the American Revolution, such a chapeau is creditable. According to Jess McLean, this company originally came from Alamutcha in Lauderdale County but was finally named the Alamutchie Infantry.
