    My master’s thesis was on the aesthetic and cultural history of Civil War photography, and this article I used as a secondary source does a good job of explaining the “Hand-in-coat” photos.

    Arline Meyer, “Re-Dressing Classical Statuary: The Eighteenth-Century ‘Hand-in-Waistcoat’ Portrait,” Art Bulletin 77 (March 1995):45-63.
