Private Weller's Overcoat, Size 38, by C.J. Daley

This coat is based on the coat worn by Private David Weller From the 2nd Kentucky Infantry. The original coat (photo below) is in the Kentucky Military Museum and is a perfect example of a ready-made civilian overcoat, purchased and used for military purposes. Body is made of Brown Jeans Wool and the lining is of striped osnaburg cotton.

During the winter of 1861-1862, the 2nd Kentucky was furnished with hooded overcoats, privately purchased for the regiment by Maj. James W. Hewitt. These overcoats came in handy at Fort Donelson, where Pvt. Weller reportedly wore his coat (although the wounds he suffered at the Fort are not indicated on the original coat).
