      I was surprised to read, in Unfurl, that the men of Company A, the
      right company of the 1st Delaware, the right-most regiment of Weber's
      Brigade at the Sunken Road, were wearing their red Zouave pants, and
      some attributed their high losses to this fact.

      Who else were wearing red pants at Antietam?
