PLEASE NOTE - As stated above, Quartermaster Shop uniforms can take 6 - 12 weeks for delivery. If you are new to reenacting, or not a reenactor, this may be difficult to understand. All of our uniforms are hand made in the US. The Uniforms are made in a production environment by experienced tailors. As each order is received, it is put onto a schedule for production on a first come first served basis. The item is shipped as soon as it is completed. I am sorry to have to be so explicit, however once in a while we encounter a frustrated customer that believes that "made to order" items should ship within a day or so.

Buttons are included in the price of each garment.

Infantry Sack Coat IconUS ARMY 1858-1865

Four Button US Sack Coat**** For fatigue duty, Union soldiers were issued a “sackcoat”. Examples of original blouses show most Arsenal made coats were lined, (Army Regulations called these “Recruit Coats”) while many commercial contract blouses were unlined. Arsenal made blouses are typically made from 12 oz wool flannel, while contract blouses were made to the specifications given by the Army to the contractor at time of order. Also, Army sutlers sold commercial grade blouses to soldiers who preferred not to take the Army issue clothing. Both blouses are accurate reproductions for US Army soldiers.
