The Augusta Depot Jackets were issued to the forces within the Department of South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia garrisoning the Southern coastline. Additionally some amount of the production was utilized by the Army of Tennessee within the period of 1864 and 1865, with known examples linked to the Atlanta and Nashville Campaigns of 1864. 

These jackets are believed to have been made at a variety of locations, including Augusta and Atlanta, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. Amongst the reenactment community, these have been referred historically as "Atlanta" Depot jackets for the past 40 years. 

As per the original, the reproduction is made from a wool tweed/jean cloth that is distinctive to these jackets.  Per the original the jacket is a six piece body, one-piece sleeve, flush collar, and has a set of belt loops.
