Garment (a corset cover) made several years before the Civil War on the Warren Plantation (Arkansas), (in White or Jefferson County) and worn during the war years.
A corset cover was worn over a corset to protect the outer garments from the busk (rigid element) of the corset, as well as hid the corset under sheerer garments.
