Late 1864 Winter 1865 Confederate Impression
I have decided to put together a very late war Confederate impression. This impression consists of a full kersey uniform. The kepi is a Richmond Depot, the jacket is the blue trimmed Peter Tait with script "I" buttons and the trousers are patterned from the Richmond Depot.
I am wearing a full set of English accouterments with the exception of the cartridge box. I also wear the painted haversack and carry a tin canteen.
The knapsack is the Isaac Campbell and is packed with my personal belongings. Attached is a boiler which replaces my tin cup and tin plate.
