Glen, here is what I've found: inclosed find info from the Abe Thomas blanket. You can also email Matt Woodburn at:

RMWoodburn@aol.com

Here is the Abe Thomas stuff!

Of special note is the "U.S." stitched in the center of the blanket in a doubled brown yarn. Measuring 4.5 by 7 inches, the letters are in the relatively uncommon Roman style with serifs as used on belt and cartridge box plates. Most extant Civil War Federal issue blankets have a US formed by 3 parallel lines of stitching, with no serifs. The yarn in the original blanket is stitched directly through the fabric in a running stitch, and shows in reverse on the back side.

I'll email you the picture!

Ron
