CSA soldiers who served overseas antebellum

Wondering if any soldiers from what would become the CSA served overseas or any soldiers in the Union who served overseas after the Mexican-American War and came back and fought for the CSA? Was reading that there may have been Americans serving in the Italian reunification and South and Central America.

Unrelated, but also looking at any info regarding the Louisiana Tigers, or the Zouave type infantry that fought for the CSA.

Robert Wheat who commanded the Louisiana Tiger Battalion came to New Orleans from Nicaragua. He had participated there in a Filibuster Expedition. There were a number of traveling Military Troupes that toured the country from about 1855 to 1860. They were dressed in what became known as Zouave garb. The outfits were popular in the North and South. The problem came when the enlistment contract expired or the clothing wore out. Then they had to dress in whatever they could get.

Forty eight former confederate and union soldiers served as mercenary officers in Khedive Ismail's Egyptian army on five year contracts. They are described as poor value in general some being called deadbeats and drunks. Others failed to fit in with Egyptian customs. (see Khedive Ismail's Army By John P. Dunn) Amongst the ex Confederates were Henry Derrick and Samuel Locket. Locket was originally an officer in the US Army who had joined the Confederate army. Former Confederate and Federal soldiers and sailors erved as mercenaries in Cuba fighting against Spain in the early 1870s and a number were captured by the Spanish and hanged.

One who served in the Confederate service was General Camille Armand Jules Marie, Prince de Polignac. He was given a Brigade of Texas dismounted Cavalry. It took a while for the Texans to get used to the "furriner". They called him "Genral Polecat"! With the death of General Mouton at Mansfield Polignac was promoted to Division command. When Smith transferred Walker's Texas Division to Arkansas, Polignac's small Texas and Louisiana Infantry Brigades were the only Infantry left in Taylor's command.

Henry McIver born in Virginia joined the Honourable East India Company Army at age 16 and was wounded in the Indian mutiny. In 1860 he fought with Giuseppe Garibaldi's red shirts in Italy and followed this up with service with the rebels in the Carlist wars in Spain.

On the outbreak of the ACW he joined the Confederacy and at the end of that war he signed up with Emperor Maximilian's forces in Mexico. Avoiding capture by fleeing to South America where he may have fought for Honduras he eventually turned up in Serbia in the Russo-Turkish War of 187778 and rose to be a General of Cavalry in the Serbian Army.

On retirement he then formed a force intended to seize and colonise part of New Guinea but was warned off by the Earl of Derby who wrote him a letter stating that "Her Majesty's Government cannot permit any Company to colonize or Occupy any portion of the island, and that, if after this intimation any ' attempt is made to do so, the High Commissioner in the Pacific and the Admiral commanding on the Australian Station, will be instructed to interfere and take measures for the protection of the natives. "

John Randolph Tucker was a Commander in the US Navy, in the Virginia Navy and the CS Navy. After the Civil War he became a rear Admiral in the Peruvian Navy and led the Peruvian fleet in a war against Spain. Some members of his naval staff were also ex CSN. Retiring in 1871 he explored and mapped the upper Amazon.
