#413 M-1861 and M-1864 US CHAPLAIN'S FROCKCOAT

Per the 1861 US Army Regulations, Chaplains were to wear a single breasted. Our Chaplain's frockcoat is made in our Deluxe Black 16 oz Wool and has a black cotton lining. A black polished cotton lining is available at extra cost. Regulations stated the buttons were to be covered with black cloth also. According to Regulations, Chaplains were not authorized to wear shoulder boards until 1880.

In 1864, the Army Uniform Board enhanced the Chaplain's Frock coat with the addition of black braid in "herringbone" fashion across the chest at the buttons and buttonholes. See image at lower left. Note the buttons are still covered in black. This coat was used by Army Chaplains until 1880.

Made in the USA!

The US Army Regulations do not list shoulder boards being worn by Chaplains. Our frockcoats have raw bottom skirt edges as per most originals. All coats shown here are custom made.
