navy or sky blue greatcoats?
- Can anyone explain why I see civil war enlisted (period photos) in sky
blue as well as navy blue greatcoats?
I'm interested in making a greatcoat and would prefer navy (dirt etc)
but I don't want to make a mistake of making a coat in a color that
wasn't that common compared to the sky blue.
I've seen the navy listed as "militia" and the sky blue as "infantry",
however I've seen period photos of enlisted clearly wearing a dark
blue (navy) greatcoat.
Any information/explanations are appreciated.
