Civil War Clothing Photos

Here are some examples of modern people in Civil War clothing that were submitted by other visitors. You can also share your own photos.

It's a normal sight around Gettysburg. I love to see the tour guides in Victorian costumes.

Some people put a lot of time and research into getting the Civil War costumes and Victorian clothing details just right.

Please share a photo of yourself or a friend in a favorite outfit. Tell us about how it was made or where you bought it, and describe some of the special occasions when you wore it.

I hope that this page will be a fun place to share ideas and provide a valuable resource for costume research the next time you are shopping to expand your wardrobe!
