Price: $48.00


W. Britain

During the last two years of the war there were many stories and reports by soldiers on both sides that mention troops in the Army of Northern Virginia appearing to be uniformed in blue. A Georgian in A.P. Hill’s Corps wrote “received clothing that was blue in color but not like that yankee blue.” This same color cloth was widely used by the British Army for uniform trousers and greatcoats hence the term known in the Richmond Arsenal as “English Army Cloth.” This cloth would begin arriving in Richmond, July 1863. This figure exhibits the unique blue color trousers along with the classic butternut colored kepi. His weapon is an M1842 Palmetto Arsenal smoothbore musket with the unique brass hardware.
