This United States Army coat is made from an indigo dyed flannel, closed with four general service US buttons, and has a pocket on the left side.

Despite official regulations, based on surviving examples and known issuances, only about one third of the blouses produced during the American Civil War were unlined. It would appear that the lined blouse was in fact issued for fatigue purposes, regardless of the original intent. 

This wartime production blouse is based on a surviving unmarked example that has a number of unusual features, including having no seam felling and sleeve lining. The cuffs are constructed with a folded piece of cotton covering the cuff facing seam - a feature not found on other unlined blouses. The blouse pocket is made from a brown flannel hand felled into place and then machine sewn around the edge.
