This enlisted uniform Frock coat can be used for all enlisted foot men, and junior officers. US dress regulations of 1861 required that a Union Frock coat, shall be a single-breasted frock of dark blue cloth, made without plaits, with a skirt extending one - half the distance from the top of the hip to the bend of the knee; one row of buttons on the breast placed at equal distances; stand - up collar to rise no higher than to permit the chin to turn freely over it, to close in front from top to bottom.

 

An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this Civil War enlisted Union Frock coat can be slipped on with ease, making it easy for a child to wear atop an entire Civil War Junior officer’s outfit.
