The Army originally intended this fatigue clothing for Cavalry soldiers cleaning the stables, since the brown shade would not show stains as well as the wool clothing. However, the cloth was found to be so comfortable in warm weather, that it was issued to soldiers of all service branches for fatigue duty. This uniform was especially popular with soldiers serving in Cuba during the Spanish American War in 1898. A nice reproduction using Nutmeg colored cotton duck (canvas).
