Hello everybody, I have a question about the overcoats worn by the 6th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia when they went through Baltimore in 1861. Were they blue or were they gray? I ask because in Don Troiani's Regiments and Uniforms of the Civil War it says on the same page that "The Massachusetts volunteers are provided with the dark-gray overcoat..." and also that "The uniformed companies have black pants, with red and orange stripes down the sides, and dark blue infantry coats". Is the latter referring not to their overcoats but actually what we would call the 4-button fatigue blouse sack coat? If not I can't figure out why they would refer to them as both dark gray and dark blue.
