Jackets made under the Commutation System terminology is not representative of a single style jacket. It is those purchased by the soldier or sent from home until the central issue system really began to function effectively in mid-1862. Even so, this did not prevent some soldiers from having uniforms made or sent from home throughout the war.

As can be found in many early images, there are coats that are not attributable to any depot and therefore presumed to be of militia or private purchase/homemade origin. There are some pretty interesting variations of which a few are offered here. If you are not sure what each option is, shoot us an email or give us a call and we'll be glad to assist you in building the jacket you want. We will also be more than happy to make a jacket for you based on an extant original or as seen in an image.
