The Quartermaster Department contracted for over 11 million shirting during the course of the Civil War. There was only one New York Clothing Depot contract with Alex. S. Saroni, 79 Maiden Lane, New York, 9 December 1861, for "making and trimming"50,OOO shirts at $0.13 cents each, of depot-supplied cloth. Given the date of this contract, it is an excellent example of early shirts issued in the 1862-1863. 

 This contract essentially copied the Antebellum Federal issue shirt, with some minor patterning changes and a dramatic reduction in quality. The reproduction captures these details, including copies of the original makers stamp and inspection stamp.
