Civil war nurses dressed in dark colors to hide filth & stains.Cage crinolines were almost never worn because they got in the way. Hospital aisles were so narrow that women's hoops could not fit. Once a woman wearing a cage crinoline walked down one of the aisles of hospital cots. She passed a soldier who was told by his dr to remain "in absolute stillness" or his wound would tear open. She caught her hoop on the soldier's cot & the jolt opened his wound,causing him to die from blood loss.
