[Uniforms] Tait contract jacket

Your information seems to state that Tait Jckets were "generally" only used in Northeastern NC and Petersburg/Appomattox. Then also say that 4400 were delivered to Wilmington 29 Dec '64 and at least one was captured at Fort Fisher. The garrison of Fort Fisher was resupplied with new uniforms about this time though before 29 December, I believe. Secondly WIlmington and Fort Fisher are in Southeastern North Carolina. All of the northeastern part of the state was in federal hands by 1862. Was the Tait Jacket issued to Fort Fisher garrison or not?
