Known for Quality Historical Men's Military Uniforms and Civilian Clothing Reproductions- Since 1975

This 1862 uniform is copied from the famous Minnis and Cowell photo of General Lee taken in 1863 in their Richmond studio. This portrait is often referred to as the “Booted and Spurred Lee” since Lee is posed in a very “soldierly” manner. The coat is not known to be in existence today, but was most likely Cadet Grey in color- Lee’s preferred color choice. In the original photo, no collar or cuff trim is evident, however various rows of sleeve braid are detected under a magnifying glass. 

#1001-Lee62 Frockcoat

The collar carries three five pointed stars without the typical general’s wreath surrounding the stars- usually indicative of a full Colonel. Virginia State seal Staff buttons are sewn on for the front in the General’s button pattern- four sets of 2. We have installed four rows of the gold sleeve braid to indicate general rank. Our reproduction is made in Cadet Grey wool and has a Black Polished Cotton lining with natural cotton sleeve lining. Back Pockets with flaps in the folds of the skirt. Skirt is left raw- typical in those days. 

Because this is an exact reproduction of one specific uniform, we can’t offer any changes from the original.  Matching Vest and Trousers are available in the additional order boxes below the coat order box.
