Shopping for a historical outfit for your child? If need something from the War of Northern aggression, order the Boy's Confederate Officer Costume now. This gray uniform includes pants and a shirt. While the Confederate army lost fewer soldiers that the Union army (483,000 casualties vs. the Union's 647,000), the Union army was twice the size of the Confederacy's and did not feel the losses as strongly as the South did. An interesting detail about the two armies is that the Confederate army paid its white and black soldiers the same amount while the Union army paid its black soldiers less, at least until 1864 when a law was passed requiring standard pay. While all Confederate soldiers were paid $11 per month, it was not unusual for them to go many months without actually getting their money. This outfit can be used for Halloween, a school play and even for a reenactment.
