      Re: Officer's great coats

      Here is a Overcoat worn by a captain in the 5th Minnesota.
      A fair amount of officers wore this type of coat. We just don't see too many pictures of officers wearing them.

        Link to another high-end officer's coat. Some interesting history behind it, too.

              Don't forget that it was Brooks Brothers uniforms that were responsible for the term "shoddy".

                Yes there is: http://historical.ha.com/itm/militar...ription-071515

                I seem to remember an old post in this forum with a photograph of a Fed. Lieutenant wearing a knapsack with a greatcoat/overcoat rolled ontop (I'm searching for it). You won't be able to tell what color/type of overcoat it is, but its there. You may find reference in period writings of soldiers and officers choosing to forgo the cape/greatcoat/overcoat and wear their blanket instead when it gets cold.
