– For fatigue duty Union soldiers were issued a “sack coat”, or fatigue blouse. This coat quickly became a favorite for its comfort and utility, and soon was the most common issued coat in the Federal Army. Our sack coat is the correct color indigo blue wool and has a roll type collar, kidney shaped left inside breast pocket, and comes with four Federal Eagle buttons, all as per original. 100% Made in Gettysburg PA. Please specify size. (NOTE: Chevrons are not installed.) If not in stock, it may take at least two to three weeks for completion.
NOTE: If we install chevrons to you garment we can no longer except the item for return or exchange due to it becoming a “custom” item.
Jacket size is measured by the size of your chest (#4). If you need the coat specifically tailored to your body size, please provide us the following measurements: Neck (2), Shoulders (16), Chest (4), Waist (at belly button, 5) and Arm (10).
