The Generals Lady offers a complete line of authentic Civil War Era reproduction clothing specially designed for the serious living historian and re-enactor. We focus on "The total look" and "Dressing your station." We use only the finest silks, wools and cotton's available to create our line of historic women's fashions.

Our site is also designed to be an educational guide on how to dress authentically, the use of proper deportment along with helpful hints on how to address issues such as properly wearing underpinnings and creating period hairstyles. Original text, images and documents from the period will help you complete the physical persona you are portraying. We do not consider ourselves a sutlery. We do not sell our merchandise at events but do offer on line purchasing of the following items.

Our patterns, colors and fabrics are reminiscent of actual prints found in Godey's Ladies Books printed from 1858 to 1865.

- Stockings
- Corsets
- Privacy Slips
- Crinolines
