    Here's an interesting unidentified Louisiana uniform with the rare "CS" oval.

    Anyone know the unit?

    17th Virginia Company G "Emmett Guards"


    17th Virginia Company A "Alexandria Rifles"

    "Capt. Towson's Emmett Guards have made their appearance in their new uniform, which the ladies - thanks to the skillful fingers and sewing machines, and more thanks to their noble hearts, - have gotten up in double quick time. The uniform is a green fatigue jacket, and green pantaloons, giving them quite a handsome appearance."

    Alabama Jackets

    From Adolphus Confederate Uniforms:

    The second surviving Alabama jacket was owned by Thomas M. Murphree, who wore it while a member of Company E, 6th Alabama Infantry. Murphree enlisted in Montgomery, May 15, 1861, and he received the jacket as part of his state clothing issue in August. He wore the jacket until February 1863, and used it at the Battle of Sharpsburg as a pillow to cradle the head of his wounded Colonel, John Brown Gordon. Remarkably, the jacket came with a note from the seamstress who made the jacket, Miss Napp, which Murphree preserved as a keepsake. Murphree was eventually commissioned, appointed as commander of Company H, 57th Alabama Infantry, and served in the Western theater for the remainder of the war.

    (A faithful reproduction of this jacket)

    Apparently this Jacket would have been worn by members of the 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment after being issued them from the state of Alabama while fighting in the Maryland Campaign of 1862.

    Here is an earlier jacket worn by Private John Young Gilmore, Company E, 3rd Alabama Infantry.
    Gilmore enlisted in Mobile, April 23, 1861.

    This jacket would have been originally grey in color and I'd venture to guess that some of the members of the 6th Alabama as well as other Regiments may have still been wearing these during the Maryland Campaign.

    I'd like to see if it may be possible to add these two jackets in for Alabama troops.

    Best,

    Georgia Artillery Frockcoat.

    Below is from Oldsouthantiques:

    "The single breasted artillery frock coat shown here is identified as a Georgia coat by the eleven W.G. MINTZER PHILA 1861, Georgia State Seal buttons. The coat is made of wool and cotton; the wool remains mouse gray, and the dye in the cotton threads has turned somewhat brown or “butternut”. Originally the coat was mouse gray all over. The faced collar and cuffs are made of wool broadcloth and still hold the original dye well. There are two red wool broadcloth loops on the front of the coat intended to hold cross belts in place. The back of the coat is cut in the conventional style of the period with the pocket flaps extending to the bottom of the skirt. There were three buttons on each side, but only one remains. The inner body is partially lined with the green satinet so often found in this period interspersed with another layer of the same outer body material. It is interesting to note that the breast padding of this coat, which has been protected from light, is lined with homespun orange."
