US Civil War, Indian War, Spanish American War 19th Century Army Wool & Cotton Blanket - One of Two. Used, 19th Century, Made in USA, Cotton & Wool, 74 x 61. This is what I believe to be an original 19th century US Army blanket from the Civil War, Indian Wars, or Spanish American War. I have researched 19th century US Army blankets and have found very little information.Photos of other original 19th century army blankets are similar in appearance and dimensions. It measures approximately 74 x 61. Woven from cotton and wool thread, gray with two blue stripes 2-3/4 wide. I can not see any evidence of US having been embroidered or stitched onto it. The blanket weighs approximately 2 lbs, 1oz.
The top and bottom edges are machine top-stitched. The blanket shows wear, tear and soil from age and use. There is some weave thinning around hole. The corners and reinforced edges have some unraveling.
Please examine our photos for condition. We have done our best to show edges, corners, front and back but happy to send more photos if you have questions or concerns. This was part of my Civil War reenactor impression and camp display, rolled up in my gum blanket bedroll.I have two of these blankets and are listing them separately.
