After the Battle of Fredericksburg, the Southern and Northern armies were separated from each other, on opposite sides of the Rappahannock river. Some Northern photographer took a photo of Confederate soldiers on the other side. The uniforms of the Confederates is very interesting -- basically, gray uniforms, shell jackets (short jackets that reach to the waist) with black slouch hats. I have blown up the photo to see the soldiers better. There is one soldier, probably an officer, wearing a frock coat (long, reaches to mid-thigh) with a double-row of buttons.
Comments and disagreement are welcome. If you are civil to me I will return the favor. Let's have a conversation.
