Here is a good looking uniform from a Civil War soldier with a cool history! This uniform was worn by a soldier that served in the 10th Connecticut Infantry, Edwin S. Greeley. Greeley was born on May 20th 1832 in Nashua, New Hampshire. He raised the company of men at the outbreak of the war and was appointed 1st Lieutenant for his efforts in the 10th Connecticut Infantry. He rose to command the regiment and on March 13th 1865 he was promoted to the rank of Brevet Brigadier General. He served throughout the War and was present with General Grant at Lee's surrender at Appomattox. After the Civil War, Greeley was a member of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States and the Grand Army of the Republic. This is his uniform from after the Civil War but is cut like a classic Civil War General's coat. The front of the coat has the two rows of uniform buttons. The spacing of the buttons are that designed for a Brigadier General and they have the Civil War eagle staff officer buttons with the Union eagle int he center. They have the Scovill maker markings which are correct for Civil War manufacture. On each of the shoulders, it has the Infantry Brigadier general shoulder insignia with the single star on the blue background. The coat is trimmed with with the felt on the cuffs and collar that really make it stand out. On the cuffs, it has the three cuff size staff eagle buttons intact. When you open up the coat, you see the original lining in the body as well as the original sleeve liners. You can tell that the coat was worn and has several repairs to keep it in service. At the collar it has the retailers label from the Jacob Reed firm in Philadelphia. Reed went into business in 1824. He stayed in business and included his children until his death in 1877. Inside the pocket it has the applied label that reads "Jacob Reed's & Sons which lets us know that this coat would have been made after his death in 1877. The coat is accompanied by a large group of research papers about Greeley and his service. There is even a photo of Greeley wearing what appears to be this exact uniform. There are also original Civil War documents including a printed copy of a General Order from Greeley who was an Assistant Adjutant General for Benjamin Butler. Also included are two letters written by Greeley and one written to him. You get the uniform as well as the research material and the original documents for $6,850.
