TIA Did Quakers Bugle? (23) Did Quakers Bugle? 16 Jul 09

Been playing strings with a Civil War era (re-enactment) group. No problem for pacifist me since I dress as a civilian (Quaker). Now another group has learned that I was a bugler (in Boy Scouts) and brass student back in the day, and they want me to bugle.

Buglers were exclusively military. I can't wear the uniform....unless...I know in later wars Quakers served un-armed as medics, etc. Was this true in the Civil War also? If so, did they wear an armband or other markings?

Thanks history buffs!
