Both branches were re-designated “Cavalry” in 1861. Mounted Rifles wore this same jacket until the uniform change in 1851. Dragoons receive the Eagle "D" buttons, Rifles receive the Eagle with plain shield. Our jacket is made using the dark blue 19 ounce field service wool and is natural cotton lined. The 3/8” yellow worsted lace is applied to the jacket in the appropriate places. Collar is 2-5/8” high. The entire front of the collar closes fully. The back features two bolsters to hold up the waist belt. Two waistline pockets and Shoulder Straps are faithfully copied to insure accuracy.
Twelve small buttons on the front, two on the functional cuffs, two on each side of the collar and a single button on the shoulder straps. Buttons are supplied, but left loose for you to sew on.
