Federal Hats

(Enlisted)


Hats Are Available In Sizes 21 to 24 ¼”

When Ordering Hats Please Provide Head Circumference or Hat Size.


We are now offering Patent brims for the forage cap and kepi.  These were done on both enlisted and officer's kepi and forage caps.  The original patent leather was 5 to 7 layers with sanding between coats that took time to build up to the correct finish.  These are not painted with shellac but instead a true multi-step process like the original patent leather.  These are not a stocked item and will be special order only.  There is an extra charge of $60.00 for these brims.

For more information on these types of leathers please follow this link 

We also make all the chin straps here in our shops in Mississippi!


#809       Federal Forage Cap “Bummer”  (Dark Blue Wool)   $55.50

These caps are made from a specially woven wool for maximum life span.  They are styled from originals in our collection as well as those in private and public collections.  In 1858, a board of officers designed the forage cap for general use in the Army.  It is important to know that the design was adopted in part because it allowed for construction by machine in great part, thus reducing the expense.  This dark blue wool cap was commonly worn by enlisted men in both theaters of the war.  

The forage cap has a high crown with a tall body meant to fall forward.   They have harness leather bills and chin straps with the correct brass slide.  They have a pasteboard crown reinforcement and polished cotton linings with leather sweatbands.   The forage cap has a welt around the top circle and across the top part of the bill the same color as the hat.                    

 

Note:  We do offer the McDowell Brim

There is a $15.00 extra charge for the McDowell brim and these are not a stocked item.

There is an extra charge of $60.00 for patent brims.

#BS809       Berdan’s Sharpshooter Forage Cap  $55.50

This cap is made exactly as above #809 in Berdan Green Wool for Berdan’s Sharpshooters.


#810       Federal Kepi “Chasseur Cap” (Dark Blue Wool)   $55.50

Styled from an original Federal Volunteer Kepi generously loaned for copy.  This cap saw some service in volunteer units.  Regular federal troops should normally wear forage caps; however, today there is some push to wear the kepi instead, so here it is!   

The kepi has a low crown and short body made of wool and lined with polished cotton.  They have leather bills and chin straps with the correct brass slide and a leather sweatband.

There is an extra charge of $60.00 for patent brims.
