There are many artificial means to age a uniform, but they produce a Farby look with poor wear patterns.
The best way to achieve the worn look quickly is by attending some of the more vigorous marching events that take up a week of time. Banks Grand Retreat, Into the Piney Woods, and In The Van come to mind, as well as the upcoming Sixth Corps March. There are also some men doing long distance weekend marches on the B&O canal path.
