1880s G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) Sackcoat (Blouse)

The G.A.R. was the Veterans organization founded in 1866 to continue the friendships in regiments had built up during the war. For the first few years, everyone wore the uniform they had when mustered out. By the '80s, those uniforms were being put aside and the 1880s era GAR uniform with notched rolling collar was adopted by the many of the GAR organizations. Usually rank insignia was not worn since the soldiers were, by now, civilians. By the 1890s rank insignia was being worn in some cases. By the 1900s, a more modern civilian style coat in dark blue wool with laydown collar was being worn by the various camps.

Our 1880s reproductions are single or double breasted made using our 20 ounce field service wool with a 14 ounce deluxe grade of wool available. Squared front is standard with round front optional.
