Irregular and Presidial lancers : MACW7 CONFEDERATE CAVALRY (lances needed)
Jalisco Lancers : MFN38 GUARD LANCERS CHARGING and MFN2 POLISH GUARD LANCER
( Note on 7th Mexican lancers : even if the idea seems strange, with a good paint job, use MRN6 COSSACKS, or give lances to MBN 11 LIGHT DRAGOONS)

Regulars in forage caps : MPN20 LANDWEHR ATTACKING and MPN21 LANDWEHR SKIRMISHING . If you want troops in shakos : MBN19 INFANTRY STOVE PIPE ATTACKING is not perfect, but you may try also MAN1 AUSTRIAN MUSKETEERS IN SHAKO.
Volunteers : mix some MPN20 LANDWEHR ATTACKING, MPN21 LANDWEHR SKIRMISHING and many MACW6 CONFEDERATE INFANTRY SKIRMISHING , MACW 19 CONFEDERATE INFANTRY ATTACKING, MACW21 CONDEDERATE INFANTRY FIRING.

Here is the main problem :
U.S. Dragoons in soft caps : MRN 9 RUSSIANS HUSSARS, some work on headgear needed (cut the plumes and trim the pelisse of these hussars). You may also use MACW14 CAVALRY IN KEPI CHARGING.
Volunteers cavalry /Rangers : MACW24 CONFEDERATE CAVALRY CHARGING
MRN4 Russian FOOT ARTILLERY , need some work on headgear ; otherwise try MBN26 FOOT ARTILLERY IN STOVE PIPES (Flying artillery) and look inside MC23 ROYAL NAVY LANDING PARTY DETACHMENTS pack where some figures in hats may be of interest too.
