Military uniforms have always been a source of pride for the soldiers and sailors wearing them and the American Civil War was no exception. The main purpose of military uniforms is to distinguish one country’s army from another. The Union and Confederate armies in the Civil War would be good examples. The uniforms of the different branches of a country’s military uniforms are also different as in the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. The specific branches uniforms are further broken down by specialty insignia and buttons such as infantry, cavalry, and artillery, to name a few, The rank of a soldier is determined by chevrons, patches, rank insignia and shoulder scales and boards.
The Union Army, Navy and marine uniforms were normally dark blue wool with the exception of some enlisted trousers which were sky blue. Officers and enlisted frock coats, shell jackets, sack coats and greatcoats were essentially the same except those worn by senior officers. These were double breasted and had two rows of buttons and officers rank insignia. The US Marine Corps had their own unique uniform frock coats and both blue and white duck trousers.
There are accessories that are necessary to make the uniform you choose complete.
