So I had Scott Lyndon make a Wisconsin State Issue jacket for me, based on Bob Braun's research article on the old 33rd Wisconsin web site. He delivered it too me viaa mounted courier, wrapped in brown paper tied off by cotton string, at Perryville 2002. I have a CDV copy of a 1st Wisconsin bugler in such a jacket, with a big belled bugle in C (a clairon). This early war western WI regiments jacket doesn't appear much after 1862.....
The Bloody First (WVI) indeed.
Fun Times, and of course, next year at Perryville.
