[Civil War] Veteran Reserve Corps

I am seeking copies of photographs and documents that pertain to the Veteran Reserve Corps of the Federal army, 1863-1865. This unit was initially called the Invalid Corps. This unit, under both names, served in hospitals and rear areas in the last tow years of the Civil War and until 1866. Their uniforms were distinctive in that they worn a shell jacket length coat of sky blue wool which is often mistaken for Confederate in b/w photography. Thank you.
