C&C Sutlery strives to meet the needs of both the Entry Level reenactor as well as the reenactor desiring the most authentic representation.

This budget friendly uniform package is an economical way to get started in reenacting or to outfit the younger soldier who is still growing. And since gently used Civil War clothing is always in demand you can sell the uniform as you upgrade and specialize or the young soldier out grows it.

When Ordering Your Uniform Special Choose a Coat, a Trousers Style and Color, a Shirt,  and a Hat using the drop down menus below the product descriptions.


  • The wool is approximately a 15 oz. weight.
  • The jean wool is a good quality and has a nubby texture like that which may have been used in the Civil War.
  • Buttonholes are lightly stitched around the edges and would benefit from overhand restitching.
  • The buttons are loosely sewn on and will most likely need re-enforcement or reattachment at some point in time.
  • Sack Coats and Shell Jackets are NOT available in Tall or Short. But remember, during the Civil War the uniforms did not always fit the soldier perfectly.
  • Sleeve length is adequate for both regular and longer arms.
  • The wool and cotton garments will shrink once it gets wet or is washed. Order 1-2 sizes larger than you normal size

COAT: US 4-Button Sack Coat, US Untrimmed Shell Jacket, Artillery Shell Jacket, or Cavalry Shell Jacket 



For fatigue duty, US soldiers were issued a blouse, commonly called a “Sack Coat”. This US 4 button sack coat is made of 12 oz. navy blue wool. It has a roll (fold-over) collar, is lined in muslin lining, has an inside pocket, and has a 4 button front of medium 3/4" Federal Eagle buttons. 

This Shell Jacket is lined with a muslin lining and made from 12 oz navy blue wool, has a 7 button front of US Eagle, medium sized buttons. The jacket features straight sleeves with non-functional cuffs without buttons. The jacket has a standing collar. Select untrimmed, artillery red trim or cavalry yellow trim.


FOOT TROUSERS in Sky Blue or Navy Blue OR MOUNTED TROUSERS in Sky Blue

By regulation, Union enlisted color is Sky Blue, however, Navy Blue is also available.



The Union trouser is made of wool with cotton facings and pockets. The MOUNTED trouser has a reinforced seat and leg. The button fly is lined with cotton to make it more flexible for buttoning. The adjustable "V" back on the waistband has eyelet holes for a tie to allow for waist adjustment. There is a dart on the back of each side that makes the trousers taper into the waistband. The trousers have a watch pocket and side seam pockets. Fly buttons and suspender buttons are pewter.

These trousers are worn higher than today's jeans. However, we are well fed and many of us have larger stomachs and our jeans are worn below the stomach. Order ONE size larger than your normal jean size. If you want an exceptionally loose fit, order TWO sizes larger than your normal jean size.

Inseam measurement is not needed as the trousers are unhemmed and can be either rolled up, cut off, or hemmed by the customer.
