This company of mounted men paraded near Hamburg yesterday afternoon.
Their uniform is of gray cloth, with black trimmings—the hat surmounted
with a blue pampoon [sic]. We noticed several of the members in our streets
after the parade was over.

The Silver Grays aka the Yancey Invincibles were enlisted by Captain J. C. Nisbet in July 1861.....The uniforms of gray, made to order, had been shipped by E. Winship, Macon, Georgia, for which I paid. The bowie knives, scabbards and belts had been furnished in Colonel Ben Easley's shops at his expense and presented to the company. ..... The lieutenants were uniformed in home-made blue jeans. My uniform was of regular United States Army blue, tailor-made, a present (with my sword and belt) from my sister, Mrs George H. Hazlehurst, of Macon, Georgia.
