Unknown Louisiana Zouave

Image located at Saving the South Relics

Found this image at Saving the South Relics. It is an image of an unknown Louisianian. I've copied and pasted their write up on the image below:

1/6th Plate Ambrotype of a Confederate Chasseur/ Zouve from Louisiana. Image is bright and distinct. Subject wears Gray Kepi and Zouve style jacket with prominent piping on sleeves, collar and seams. Below the mat one can see the typical baggy Zouve trousers one would expect with such a soldier. The image originated in Louisiana and is possibly from one of the several New Orleans units dressed in such attire in the early months of the war. Image comes in full case.
