Union Officer Great Coat

Officer Great Coat 100% wool in 19 oz

Though the regulation overcoat/cloak for a Union Officer was dark blue with toggles which had been copied from the French Regulation Officer Cloak. By 1863/64 the infantry officer in the field preferred to wear the sky blue great coat with a long cape and 12 infantry buttons down the front and 12 buttons down the cape. It also had cuff lace on the lower arms according to his rank (this was chosen so he would not stand out in the field)
