Good morning all,

Who knows what was the exact uniforms worn by officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the French imperial guard foot and horse artillery in the battles in italy in 1859?

Thank you and stay safe,

Seems that no one can help individually and it is not my period, but if you go to Amazon or Google and search for 'Second Empire uniforms' or suchlike you will find lots of sources. Even Pinterest has a page.

I know their uniforms, but I'm not sure which one they wore in Italy in 1859, considering what happened in 1870 …

Campaign Booklet #8, The Second Italian War of Independence 1859, by Luigi Casali, has a description on page 33, but there's no image, and I don't know if it is exact enough.
