Pvt. Amzi L. Williamson 53rd North Carolina Infantry
“North Carolina provided sack coats for its troops until early 1862 when it replaced them with gray Jackets. Williamson’s jacket, which he was wearing when he was hit by musket fire at the Battle of Gettysburg, typifies North Carolina’s longer waisted version of the Confederate shell.” Echos of Glory
