Uniforms

There was a vast difference between uniforms in the Confederate Armies during the Civil War. Officers uniforms were often ornate and tailor-made while enlisted men’s uniforms were plain and made from varying fabrics. Some were imported while others were distributed by one of several depots, an abrasive jean cloth being the most common. Colors were anything but uniform by war’s end and this contrasted with trimmed colorful uniforms of 1861. Memorial Hall has a variety of uniforms in its collection including those of several Confederate generals. Click on images to enlarge.
