Schuylkill Arsenal Trousers, Machine and Hand-Sewn, 34-30,


Beautiful reproduction S.A. trousers by Wambaugh, White, & Co. These trousers are in the S.A. style and feature hand-finished details with machine sewing on the long seams.

The Federal government’s original military goods manufactory and contractor, Schuylkill Arsenal in Philadelphia continued operating during and well after the Civil War. This powerhouse provided everything from specialized regimental uniforms to forage caps. As a form of social welfare Schuylkill Arsenal parceled out pre-cut clothing to be sewn by thousands of local women who were in need of employment. As a result of this no two pairs of surviving S.A. trousers are exactly the same. For the duration of the war Schuylkill provided uniforms (and fabric) to nearly all other Federal depots or arsenals, in order to help supplement their own locally produced supplies.
