Every infantryman wore a belt set that included a cartridge box and sling, cap box, and bayonet scabbard. The belt was made of thick, black leather and closed at the waist with a large brass buckle with a "US" on the front. There was a similar brass plate with "US" stamped on it placed on the cartridge box that hung on the soldier's right hip. Artillerymen usually did not wear belt sets of equipment except for special ceremonies or if they were in special units called heavy artillery regiments.
