Antique Papal Zouave Uniform, Gray Wool with Red Trim, Brass Buttons
Zouaves Pontificaux, Multinational Fighting Force that Defended the Vatican, entire view 1

A regiment of volunteers from all over Christendom who banded together to defend
Blessed Pope Pius IX and his temporal sovereignty between 1860 and 1871; their
uniform is a combination of the uniform of the Zouaves of Africa and the one of the
French infantries. This uniform would change the title of “bataillon de tirailleurs” into the
famous “Zouaves Pontificaux.”The New York Herald of 10 June 1868 numbered the
zouaves at 4,592, including 50 Englishmen, 10 Scots, 101 Irish, 14 Americans and 135
Canadians. Even Africa and China were represented. The largest nationality was,
perhaps surprisingly, the Dutch (1,910), followed by the French (1,301).

Major Charles Appleby’s gravestone. He lay in an unmarked
Green-Wood grave from his death in 1891 until early in the 21st
century, when Green-Wood’s Civil War Project applied for,
received, and installed this V.A. gravestone. Green-Wood is a
living cemetery that brings people closer to the world as it is and
was, by memorializing the dead and bringing to life the art,
history, and natural beauty of New York City. Founded in 1838
and now a National Historic Landmark, Green-Wood was one of
the first rural cemeteries in America. By the early 1860s, it had
earned an international reputation for its magnificent beauty and
became the prestigious place to be buried.
