#800       Federal Fatigue Blouse  (4 Button Sack Coat)     

This is the four button “sack” coat which was the mainstay of all service branches during the war.  Our reproduction “Sack Coat” is a very basic coat based on information from the Smithsonian Institute.  Made of dark blue approx. 10 ounce wool flannel.  It has a three piece body with two piece sleeves and a four piece collar approx 2 ½” wide with rounded corners.  This unlined version has felled seams which gives the appearance of top stitching. The corners along the bottom front of the coat are rounded.  The front facing is top stitched.  The cuffs are faced on the inside and top stitched.  There is a 1 ¼” split in the rear sleeve seam on the cuff.  The cuff has rounded corners as it starts into the split. (Scalloped)   There is a kidney shaped  inside left hand breast pocket.  These coats have four  ¾” general service eagle buttons evenly spaced for closure. 

 According to the regulations, all enlisted men of all service branches received one of these coats.  Their great comfort and usefulness made them the standard garment during the war.   Revised U.S. Army Regulations of 1861 Section 1485 states, “ For Fatigue Purposes - a sack coat of dark blue flannel extending half-way down the thigh, and made loose, without sleeve or body lining, falling collar, inside pocket on the left side, four coat buttons down the front.”

Revised U.S. Army Regulations of 1861 Section 1486 states, “For recruits - the sack coat will be made with sleeve and body lining.”

#801       Federal Frock Coat (Enlisted)

By regulation, all foot troops were to have the frock coat for normal service wear.  Due to the efforts of the photographers of the war, and also to our fine photographic archivists today, both hobbyists as well as professional, we are able to know that the frock coat was greatly in evidence throughout the war.  One very famous Gardner image of the dead of the Iron Brigade at Gettysburg proves without doubt that these infantrymen wore the frock coat into battle as late as July 1863.  Other photos show its heavy use well past the end of the war. 

 Our coat is copied from an original in our private collection and is made as specified by the Revised U.S. Army Regulations of 1861 Section 1482 of 18 oz. twill weave wool with narrow service branch piping on cuffs and collar. Collar and Cuff piping is done in 1/8” Sky blue for Infantry, Yellow for Engineer, Red for Heavy Artillery, and Crimson for Ordnance and Hospital stewards.  It has a quilted breast lining of cotton and sleeve linings of cotton muslin.  Sleeve cuffs are functional with a two button closure and the edge of the split is piped.  There are two tail pockets.  The skirt is made long  because they were issued unhemmed and each soldier hemmed the coat to regulation; (mid way between the top of the hip and the bend of the knee).  The skirt is not lined.  The frock coat has a nine ¾” button front with two 5/8” buttons on each cuff and two 3/4     buttons at the waist on the back at the top of the pleats.  Buttons are general service Eagle Buttons.
