Posted on: 08/21/2012
There were many interesting uniform variant's during the Civil War.  Today's portrait shows an unusual Confederate uniform, which has been identified by the Library of Congress as a rifleman's coat.  Rifleman or not, it's an interesting example of what some men in the armies looked like in the early part of the war.
