Their are two photos of veterans wearing what looks like this badge in the above mentioned book pg.550 , pg 560.
Brian Pohanka wrote in Vortex Of Hell . Their colorful Zouave uniform, precise maneuvers, effectiveness in combat, and steady bearing under fire won them universal respect and recognition.
At Second Manassas the 5th lost 330 men and still soldiered on thru Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.
One of the 5th most famous commanders G.K.Warren went on to Little Round Top and his place in history.
