With the 1860s Sack Coat and Pants Enlisted Civil War Uniform your doll can dress as a Union or Confederate soldier. This historical PDF pattern designed by Thimbles and Acorns will fit most 18-inch dolls.
During the Civil War it was not uncommon for boys as young as 12 years of age to enlist as drummer boys. Though they weren’t technically soldiers, they were still close to the battle lines and often took up arms when battles became heated. This uniform is patterned after the standard pants and sack coat issued to enlisted men and is the same style worn by Johnny Clem, who at 9 years of age became the youngest soldier of the Civil War… actually, of any American war.
