US Intervention forces:
Mostly American civil war Americans with some confederates as well to
represent infantry in broad hats. Also several American bases of confederate infantry painted as US volunteers.

Lekw notes : This conflict provides very nice uniforms and a lot of variety. My French are both with kepis and broad hats. Some hats have been filed off for legionnaires without cover. The Mexicans are a mix and even the regulars have figures painted with white or brown shirts mixed in to represent lost equipment or lack of uniformity. The irregulars and guerillas are mixed figures and uniforms some very official most broad hats and white brown tan shirts often no shoes for guerillas. For the Austrian legion with careful painting the confederate broad hat can represent a decent if not perfect fedora.
