Eliza, c.1860

Turkish costume. From original dress of Miss Eliza Wilson of Menomonie, WI, as documented in Wisconsin Women in the War. The dress is light brown, no crinoline, and reaches half way between the knee and ankle. The upper sleeve is loose and gathered at the wrist. Pantalettes of same color, wide, but gathered tight around the ankle. This vivandiere dress is no hinderance to rapid movements; fast walking is a graceful exercise, while the slow inevitable strut of crinoline appears awkward to the lady dressed in army costume.
Incl. sizes 6-16.

Her waist belt and pistol holster are of black leather, as are her shoes. Both vivandieres and the colorful Zouave uniforms were most popular during the beginning of the war.
