Re: RD jackets and trousers, what were the most common colours?
You may also want to go on the Museum of the Confederacy website and order the Catalogue of Uniforms, which details all the CS garments in their collection, types of material for the body, linings, and sleeves, types of buttons, etc. Best regards, Tom

No need of writing then but we can talk and talk again, and my boy can talk to me and I will never tire of listening to him and he will want to go with me everywhere I go, and I will be certain to let him go if there is any possible chance."
