Based on a surviving pair of Georgia Soldiers Clothing Bureau Trousers linked to John McNish Hazlehurst. Hazlehurst was a seventeen-year-old cadet from Georgia Military Institute who fought with the Georgia Battalion of Cadets in the Army of Tennessee from the spring of 1864 until May 1865. 

From October 1862 through September 15, 1863, the bureau produced 55,000 pairs of pants, 37,000 jackets, 65,000 pairs of drawers, and 70,000 shirts.  Its field issues during 1863 included 5,838 hats, 43,728 jackets, 46,325 pants, 32,181 shirts, 30,068 drawers, 23,756 pairs of shoes, and 4,473 pair socks.  In November 1863, the bureau had on hand 4,719 hats, 7,291 jackets, 8,828 pants, 9,185 shirts, 8,036 drawers, 12,293 pairs of shoes, and 7,517 pair socks. The Quartermaster General of Georgia, Ira R. Foster, reported on January 30, 1864 that the State of Georgia had issued to Georgia troops in Confederate service (all armies), “about 15,000 suits clothing and about 30,000 pair of shoes” during that winter.

The issuance of these trousers appears to start in the fall of 1862 through 1864, to all Georgia soldiers within the various armies of the Confederacy. It supplemented the official depot system heavily in the Army of Tennessee and Army of Northern Virginia.
