General Information

    These waist length jackets were worn by many Civil War Union Cavalry and Artillery units throughout the war and by Dragoon and Mounted Rifle units early in the American Civil War. Several Infantry units and some state militia wore untrimmed versions of this uniform jacket, commonly called a Roundabout. The infantry version was created in the field by cutting the skirt off the US Infantry frockcoat in warmer weather to make a shorter jacket. Although not regulation, this was considerably more comfortable to wear during the summer months. Our shell jackets and roundabouts are made from a good grade of dark blue wool and the standard lining for enlisted men is natural muslin. Optional chest padding and special lining materials are available at extra cost.

    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).

    Chevrons and Service Stripes are not included with uniforms, whether pictured or not, but can be added for an additional charge.

U.S. M1864 NCO VRC (Veteran Reserve Corps) Shell Jacket

Enlisted & NCO

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:25:47 EDT

/td>
U.S. Civil War VRC (Veterans Reserve Corps) Shell Jacket
    Shell Jacket, M1864 Veterans Reserve Corps: Early in the War, the Government realized it had a sizeable amount of men that because of wounds or other infirmities were unfit for combat service. Initially called the Invalid Corps, many men who had recovered from their wounds served out their enlistments doing less strenuous work for the Army in the Veteran's Reserve Corps. In many cases, this would be guarding prisoners, clerical duties, etc. Jackets in Sky Blue wool with dark blue lace were issued to enlisted men. Our jacket is natural cotton lined and includes the buttons, but not sewn on. Order the standard sky blue Trousers with appropriate rank trim if needed. When re-assigned to the VRC, a soldier would keep the same rank he had when serving with his combat arms unit.

    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.
