In 1851, enlisted Greatcoats were a light blue color called Sky Blue and turn down cuffs were added. A single breasted model with standing collar and elbow length cape was issued to men who were not mounted- called Foot Soldiers. This would be the branches of Infantry, Hospital Corps, Ordnance and Engineers. Cape is unlined.
Our coat is made of quality heavy weight wool with a heavy natural cotton twill body lining that extends below the waist. An optional wool body lining, for the ultimate in warmth, is available at extra cost. Back has two belts with button for adjustment and a split back seam. All styles have raw bottom skirt edges, as per originals.
