Original Centennial Connecticut First Company Governors Foot Guard Uniform Coat


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello !!  Trying to find some help identifying this uniform from these images.  It is quite old but does not have the quilted lining one often sees in 1800's uniforms ... 

I found an almost identical coat at this link, which I used to begin my identification ... but mine lacks the buff lining and tail facings and any internal markings ...

I think mine is similar enough to be related in some way ... but I'd appreciate guidance in just how, as it has been suggested to me that it is not authentic.  

 

Thanks

Rick

A T Jones is a costumer.  What you have is probable a costume as opposed to a uniform.

You can make a reenactor discussing the accuracy of his uniform really angry if you say something along the lines of, "Oh, you were never inducted into or actually served in the German Army?  Well, then, what you are wearing then is a costume, not a uniform."
