The jackets produced by the Richmond Clothing Bureau, and distributed by the Richmond Depot, underwent three generally accepted modifications over the course of the war. Shown here is the first or “Type I”. It features a six piece body, two piece sleeve, epaulettes, and waist belt loops. Though no extant examples are believed to exist, it has been noted through images that they were generally trimmed. We drafted our pattern from a Type II that was found on the Gettysburg Battlefield and currently is housed in the GNMP collection. This example is made from B&B Tart Dust Jean, has the Red Soutache, Osnaburg lining and Federal Eagle buttons.
