Overcoats/Greatcoats Wise's Brigade

So I figured I'd get myself a overcoat for this winter but I had a few questions about it first.

1. What if any kind of overcoats/greatcoats did Wise's Brigade have while stationed in the trenches around Petersburg?

2. Where they issued the imported British overcoats?

3. Would it be accurate for me to wear an English overcoat if my impression is is mid to late war?
