This uniform coat belonged to Rawley White Martin, and is on display in the museum of the Pittsylvania Historical Society in Chatham, Virginia. The uniform appears to be that of a Confederate infantry captain, thus suggesting that Martin may have worn it early in the war. The coat was photographed in 2005.
