Union Corporal in State Jacket Standing Firing

Although the archetypal image of a Union soldier is an infantryman wearing a forage cap and sack coat, but in reality there were several styles of coats worn during the war. In addition to the 1858 sack coat or “blouse,” nine-button frock coats, and various short “shell jackets” were worn. Before the war many states both north and south issued short jackets in gray. Obviously, this caused confusion on the early battlefields and soon all the northern states adopted blue for their men. In 1861 New York State militias and volunteers were issued distinctive short jackets with an eight-button front, a stand-up collar, shoulder straps, and a single belt keeper loop on the left side, piped in sky blue.
