It being found, however, that the rebel army had adopted that color for their troops, Gen. McClellan changed the uniform of the volunteers to that worn by the regulars, and as a general thing most of the regiments are uniformed alike. Since the battle of Bull Run, permission has been given many of the new regiments to adopt some distinguish 682,571.
