U.S. Officer's Shell Jacket for Generals (Union)

Item Last Updated: Tuesday, 10-Mar-2015 20:30:16 EDT

General Officers Shell Jacket, Major General
       The U.S. Civil War General Officer's Uniform Double Breasted Shell Jacket has the front buttons spaced per regulations. It is made of dark blue wool and lined with black cotton. The collar and cuffs are made of black velvet, as per regulations. The coat comes with an inside left breast pocket. It has functional cuffs, with three button closure. It is identical to the General Officer's Frockcoat except the jacket has no skirt.

     General Officer's Double Breasted coat comes with either a 16 button (Brigadier 4 x 2) front with a total of 22 buttons or a 18 button front (Major General 3 x 3) with a total of 24 buttons.

   The Gold or Black sleeve braid on this jacket was not regulation. However, there are examples of original uniforms in museums that have this braid on the sleeves. Some have the braid in black, others in gold. The pattern indicates the rank and is taken from the cloak coat sleeve braid design.

Foot and Mounted Trousers for U.S. (Union)

Enlisted, NCO's and Officers

Item Last Updated: Tuesday, 10-Mar-2015 20:30:16 EDT

U.S. Military Trousers, foot and mounted. M1858 Infantry Sergeant shown.
M1858 Inf. Sgt.
    Both the M-1858 (Dark Blue) and M-1862 (Sky Blue) US Army trousers are offered. Our Union style trousers have the split back with cord tie and comes with side seam pockets. Mule Ear, Dog Ear and USMC French style pockets are available as an extra cost item. Trousers should be worn quite loose. They also have a 1" higher rise than today's blue jeans. Legs are left un-hemmed so that you can hem them the length that you want. Pewter buttons for fly and suspenders are supplied. ONE front suspender button is standard. If two per side are desired, specify and add 50 cents.

    Mounted style has an extra layer of wool in the seat and inner leg area. Standard color is Sky Blue, however, M-1858 model dark blue and Berdan's Green is available on custom order.

    The M-1862 trousers were worn well into the Indian Wars. If you are purchasing them for Indian Wars NCO or Officer use, make sure to specify the appropriate M1872 Trouser stripe.

    For Army Officers: The 1858 Army Regulations called for officer's of all branches to wear Dark Blue trousers with the appropriate branch of service colored cord welt (piping) in the out seam. Generals and Staff Officer's trousers were to be plain without any piping. The 1862 Uniform Regulations changed the trouser color to Sky Blue for line officers (Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry) and continued the branch colored piping. Generals and their staff officers were to continue wearing Dark Blue trousers. However, 1861 Regulations now called for Staff Officer's trousers to have a 1/8" gold metallic piping. General's trousers continued to be plain without any piping.

    For USMC (United States Marine Corps) order the Sky Blue trousers with the USMC pocket and belted back options. For Privates, Corporals, Sergeants and First Sergeants order them without any piping/trouser stripe and for Officer's, Sgt Major, QM Sgt, Drum Major, Chief Musician and Musicians order them with the USMC piping.

    For Veterans Reserve Corps order the Sky Blue trousers with either back option and the Veterans Reserve Corps stripes.

    For Navy Officer's order the Dark Blue trousers with side seam pockets, belted back option and NO piping/trouser stripe.

Civil War Officers Sashes

Item Last Updated: Tuesday, 10-Mar-2015 20:30:16 EDT

Civil War Officers Sash
    From 1852 thru 1872 the US Army Regulations call for officers to wear a silk net sash. US Sergeant Majors, Quartermaster Sergeants, Hospital Stewards and First Sergeants were to wear red wool sashes. The Confederate Army Regulations were the same as the US Army Regulations, except that they added a Yellow Sash for Cavalry Officers.

    The Sash was wrapped twice around the waist and tied at the left hip. The pendant was to extend about 18" below the waist.

    These sashs come in two lengths:
  1. Standard Length: 30" to 40" Waist Size.
  2. Long Length: 42" to 48" Waist Size. Long Length is available in Crimson, Yellow and Buff ONLY.
