Jacket based on the written description of garments worn by the North Carolinian's of Branch's Brigadein Virginia - May 1862 (after the battle of Hanover):

"The mass adhered to homespun suits of gray or butternut, and the course blue kesery common to slaves."

 Additional historical background is presented within Cadet Gray and Butternut Brown.

While no known examples of this survived, other similar materials and descriptions are noted throughout the war. The use of a known image from the brigade, in conjunction with the description, used for the purposes of reproducing this described garment.
The coat is based on a known image from the 18th North Carolina that was brigaded with Branch. The garment is a frock coat, with an outside waist pocket, and to be made from one of the noted fabrics from the written description. The trousers are similar replicated from what is seen in the image, with missing points of detail being replaced from other known "sent from home" examples from the Carolinas.
