ACW Unit - ACW 6s Marine on guard

These are a recent ebay purchase which arrived painted as two separtae Confederate militia battalions. They are retored to their propoer colours as a large battalion of US Marines - the officers are French Crimean ones. I hope this unit will also find a role (possibly split into two battalions) with the Georland forces.

A very versatile figure and a nice unit. Am I overthinking this or are the two officers different or has someone simply pushed the boundaries of arm twisting?
