On page 3 of Don Troiani's Civil War (1995, Stackpole Books), there is an illustration and description showing the 1st South Carolina Rifles (known as Orr's rifles). The description states that they wore distinctive green-trimmed gray frock coats and trousers. The illustration shows them wearing something similar to the Hardee hat pinned up on the right side with a palmetto pin and another palmetto pin on the front of the hat.
