The 14th Brooklyn, also called the 14th Regiment New York State Militia were nickamed "The Red Legged Devils" becuase during the First Battle of Bull Run, the 14th charged at Jackson's brigade again and again and after several charges Jackson said to his men, "Hold On Boys, here come those red legged devils again!"
