None.

Four years prior to the start of the Civil War, enlisted men were directed to remove their trouser stripes.

Little confusion here I believe.  In any case, the color would be infantry blue.  Unless you happen to refer to dragoons, those would be green.   But CW mounted infantry, such as Wilders Lightning brigade, would have retained their infantry branch color of Blue.
