Based on the 1851 regulations and issued throughout the Antebellum and wartime period. Made from Canton cotton flannel, which is a heavily rough outside with a soft, heavily napped interior side. The original drawers were completely hand sewn with cotton leg ties and adjustable cinching back. Unlike contract drawers, these are constructed with facings on both vents and yoke. Mot interestingly the drawers are sewn "inside-out", with the seams and felling out the outside vs inside. This practice leaves the interior smooth from construction and aids in longevity of the construction from wear. Lastly, the seams are sewn on the exterior of the leg, vs inseam construction more commonly seen on Federal contract drawers. 

The reproduction has all visible work completed by hand.
