Artillery Jacket in Medium Grey Wool with optional Corporal stripes.

CS EARLY WAR JACKET
Our early war jacket reflects the militia image of a "romantic war". Jackets have more trim, more buttons, and in many cases were designed by the militia units themselves. Two examples of our typical Early War reproduction of Early War Militia jackets from Virginia and Mississippi (both reproductions) are shown to the right and at left below .

Our jacket is made using 19 ounce field service wools. The jacket is lined with cotton muslin and has an inside left breast pocket. It is a bit longer in the waist than some of the later issue jackets, and comes with branch of service colors on the collar, cuffs, and edge piping (piping runs down the left front and around the bottom).

Our typical Early War jacket has a nine-button front with two small buttons on each cuff. CSA buttons are supplied but not sewn on. All jackets are cotton lined and custom made for each individual order. Please allow 6 - 12weeks for delivery. Because custom orders are not returnable, please visit our measurement page, and submit your measurements.

     Although issued to many units in the Army of Tennessee, the various Columbus Depot jackets are often referred to as the “Orphan Brigade Jacket”.  From research to date, all jackets issued were made using a wooljean fabric and had either the Medium Blue collar and cuffs or were without any trim color.  Wooljean is a fabric that has a wool warp and cotton weft.  So even if you portray Cavalry or Artillery and wish to use this jacket, the medium Blue trim color or no trim colors is the correct pattern.

CS ATLANTA DEPOT JACKET
(Mid thru Late War)-A basic "salt and pepper" gray jacket without trim colors.
We offer both a wool version and a wool jean version. Both jackets feature a six piece body, one piece sleeves, six wood button front and cotton lining. The back of the jacket angles to a point- similar to the Columbus Depot I Jacket.

A peculiar feature of this jacket is that the front edge of the jacket on the left side aligns with the edge of the collar, causing the front edge of the jacket to fall off the centerline of the body. Although somewhat different in design, this jacket saw considerable service in Western theater operations. All CS Atlanta Shells are custom order.

Please allow 8 weeks for delivery. Because custom orders are not returnable, please visit our measurement page, and submit your measurements when you order.

The coat front features five wood buttons and has an exterior pocket.
