A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
During the years of America’s Civil War, the nation was strongly divided into two lands, two mindsets, and two battlefronts: the North and the South. As brothers fought against their own brothers, taking to the battlefield to fight for their chosen army, the conflict dragged on. Still, young its in years, the United States military also became divided in two — and the Union and Confederate armies were left to devise their own uniforms and war plans.
As the Civil War waged throughout the mid-1800s, Union soldiers donned official uniforms in varying shades of blue. While at first men enlisted and wore whatever clothing they brought from home, the Union Army followed the tradition of the U.S. Army. All Union men wore dark blue trousers, while their rank was differentiated by jackets in varying shades of navy, sky, and faded blue. Famous Civil War figures including Ulysses S. Grant, James Birdseye McPherson, and Joseph Hooker all proudly wore the navy blue of the Union military until 1865.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, these Civil War military trousers are authentic to the men’s attire of 19th century America in the midst of war. Your costume includes a single pair of child-sized navy blue twill breeches. These historically accurate trousers resemble those worn by soldiers fighting for the Union and feature four pockets and an adjustable waist with a button fly to complete the traditional military look while still allowing children to easily slip on these pants and fit comfortably. Your pair of Civil War military pants are also adorned with a gold grosgrain ribbon stripe down each pant leg, meaning they can also be worn to represent a Union officer’s dress trousers.
Pair these military trousers with our wide selection of Civil War clothing pieces, accessories, and added details to create your very own personalized costume. You can mix and match different Civil War attire to shape your own custom Union or Confederate attire.
This high-quality costume pair of military trousers can be used for Civil War-themed school events, a history lesson, or simply a fun day of experiencing life during America’s divisive war as a Northerner. Made with pride and care right in the United States, these Civil War military trousers are built to last.
