DescriptionCivil War Vulcanized Rain Cover.
A fine example of a private purchase vulcanized rubber rain cover. This is the exact rain cover pictured on page 189 of Time Life's Arms and Equipment of the Union.
The cover was in the Jim Stamatelous Collection until the Horse Soldier purchased the collection and the item was purchased by the consignor. An almost identical example of this rain cover is pictured on page 110 in U.S. Army Headgear by John P. Langellier & C. Paul Loane.
