This is a contract Union Cavalry Jacket.  This jacket is typical of jackets worn by Cavalry soldiers.  It has a wool body with yellow tape trim and is fully lined.  This is marked in the sleeve with the Contractor's marks JL Lee New York.  There is an inspector's mark in the body lining.  The outside of the coat is strong with little mothing.  The pillows are intact and the tape is complete with the exception of a small strip missing on the top of the collar - about 1 1/2" The lining is complete as well though some seams have been touched up by hand.  There is another mark in one sleeve.  It is indistinct but probably a costume shop where a lot of these jackets came from.  The top button came off and has been reattached.      SOLD
