Rare Zouave uniform lent for display

The Peekskill (N.Y.) Museum sent the one-of-a-kind uniform of John L. Hughes, a Civil War volunteer who joined the Hawkins Zouaves, and a garrison flag to The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in North Carolina.

An exhibit there will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Confederate attack on Cape Hatteras and the Outer Banks. • Article
