Item Last Updated: Monday, 02-Feb-2015 20:48:46 EST

Civil War U.S. Enlisted and NCO Frock Coat
    M1861 US Enlisted Frockcoat: The trimmed enlisted Civil War uniform frockcoat was the regulation dress for Infantry, Heavy Artillery, Engineers, Hospital Stewards and Ordnance Dept during the war. The most famous of these was probably the Iron Brigade. It looks especially grand with the addition of the brass shoulder scales. Ours is made using our quality 19 ounce dark blue field service wool. Regulations call for the coat to reach one half the distance from the hip to the knee, however, most period photos show the coat was generally made with a somewhat longer skirt than regulation. Standard skirt length on our coat is about 3/4 of the distance from hip to knee. You may cut it shorter if you desire, as the hem is left raw per originals. The coat body is lined with natural muslin to the waist, and has an inside left breast pocket and two pockets in the folds of the skirt. Optional padding and quilting of the chest area is available, as are several alternate authentic lining materials. All frockcoats have 9 button front with sleeves having functional cuffs closing with two small buttons. US General Service Eagle buttons are supplied with the uniform but not sewn on. Made in the USA!

    Branch Trim: Artillery - Red; Berdan Sharpshooters - Green Coat w/Lt. Blue Trim; Engineer - Yellow; Hospital Steward - Crimson; Infantry - Lt. Blue; and Ordnance - Crimson.

    The Musicians trimmed enlisted M1861 frockcoat was the regulation dress for Infantry and Artillery Musicians during the war. It looks especially grand with the addition of the brass shoulder scales. Except for the musicians trim, it is the standard trimmed enlisted frock coat.

    United States Sharp Shooter Frockcoat/ Berdan Sharp Shooters Type 1: frockcoat is made from dark green wool, and has emerald green piping.

Made in the USA!

    USMC Enlisted Undress Frockcoat: is made using our 19 ounce dark blue field service wool with half lining in black cotton and natural sleeve linings. A deluxe grade of wool is offered at additional charge. Per USMC Uniform Regulations, the scarlet (red) welt is around the bottom of the collar only. Functional cuffs close with 2 buttons. Reproduction 1855 US Marine buttons are supplied with this uniform.

    USMC Civil War Era Enlisted Full Dress Coat: is made using our 16 ounce Deluxe dark blue wool and features a full body lining in black Polished cotton and natural sleeve linings.
