    Description

    Regulation Civil War Artillery Enlisted Man's Frock Coat Regulation Artillery Enlisted Man's Frock Coat. Certainly one of the most difficult regulation Civil War garments to obtain. The blue wool body is in fine condition and retains its original nine general service "eagle" buttons down the front and two at each functional cuff. The cuffs and the tall 1¾" collar are trimmed with welting of bright red wool, as called for in regulations for artillery units. Inside one white cotton sleeve lining is clearly stenciled in black "H&W" above which are two stenciled dots. The padded, green polished cotton interior chest lining shows some discoloration and has some losses, brown polished cotton tail pockets. One sleeve lining partially detached. There are a handful of small holes on the back shoulder and tail and a few minor seam separations.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
