This United States Army coat is made from an indigo dyed flannel, closed with four general service US buttons, and has a pocket on the left side.

Despite official regulations, based on surviving examples and known issuances, only about one third of the blouses produced during the American Civil War were unlined. It would appear that the lined blouse was in fact issued for fatigue purposes, regardless of the original intent. 

This variant of the M1858 blouse is based on examples associated with Steubenville, Ohio. These blouses are unusual in nature, showing an exterior patch pocket, no body lining (all seams felled by hand), and sleeve lining. At least two surviving examples have been identified and a handful of period images show blouses with these features. It is unclear how many were produced and issued.
