Young unknown boy dressed as a zouave. A zouave uniform included short open-front jackets, sashes & baggy trousers. This title was originally given to light infantry regiments in the French army between 1830-1960, but was also adopted during the American Civil War.

I found this photo in my late1890's family photo album...unidentified child, but when I saw this photo posted, it reminded me of mine. Does anyone think this is a military style outfit on this (I think) girl child?
Oct 26, 2015 · Reply
Maybe private school uniform or just the style of that era. I don't believe it's military

It's hair but can't tell if it's b. or g. Doesn't matter except for you to tell who it might be. What a shame...

Even the kid knows this isn't right. Light infantry-wear? Amazing to this ppl could fight wars with that much fabric around their legs. Love the photo

Yes, Bunny, the Zouave soldiers wore this kind of uniform. There were over 70 Union Zouave regiments in the Civil War.

There was a Zuoave unit that came out of the Philadelpahia, Pa area. The 114th PA. If you google it you can find out more on the regiment. My gggrandfather and his brother where part of the band with the unit. A cousin has one of their uniforms. It is very colorful with bright red pants. Trust me, any mother would have wanted a picture of their child in that..sadly its not in color.
