- Calculated at Checkout
At their time of their muster into Federal service, the men were promised by no less a figure then General Irvin McDowell, that they could use the number "14". Officially, however the regiment bore the number "84" on the roster of New York volunteer regiments, and there was in fact another regiment called the 14th New York Volunteers.
This situation always annoyed the officers and men of the Fourteenth, and throughout the unit's civil war career, use of the number "84" was scrupulously avoided. All correspondence, payrolls, and reports were headed "14th New York State Militia", while the regiment commonly referred to itself, and was commonly known throughout the army, as the "14th Brooklyn".
The Chasseur uniform was adopted in 1860, and the regiment first paraded in it on 18th April 1861. These uniforms had been furnished by the city of Brooklyn. From this date until its men were mustered out in 1864, the Chasseur uniform was worn on virtually all occasions except fatigue.
They received their nickname, the "Red legged Devils", during the First Battle of Bull Run.
Referring to the regiment's colorful red trousers, as the regiment repeatedly charged up Henry House Hill, Confederate General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson yelled to his men, "Hold on Boys! Here come those red legged devils again!"
