[Uniforms] uniforms: how old?

I have a long ( to the ground) , powder-blue wool military coat, that
has many gold-colored buttons with "massachusetts regiment"
on them. I beleive it may have been worn by a Boston physician.
Don't know where to begin dating it, or determining value.
Also other military items,including hats, that
probably span many years, all from the same family.
Can anyone suggest illustrations that might help me date
some of these items?
Some other items I have from this same family are early 1800's.Any help appreciated.
