    Description

    Handsewn Linen Shirt of the Mexican War Era. Typical of early military shirts, this example has a 5" wide collar that would easily fold over a leather neck stock. Carefully hand made, the shirt has a front closed by four small cloth covered buttons each of which has an unusual grommet reinforcement (buttons are likely later replacements), with another similar button at one cuff and an early four-hole bone button at the other. Condition is good with some minor staining and a few small tears. A garment that would have been found in a Mexican War officer's kit.
