Confederate States Caps

    We are now proud to carry caps made by Mike Anderson of Anderson Dry Goods.  Over several decades Mike has established a reputation of high quality and excellent customer service, and we have already received several caps from Mike and they are all outstanding.  We are fortunate to offer a wide variety of CS caps and will try and maintain a modest in stock supply of caps.  We are also happy to take orders for our different models of caps in various sizes.

    NOTE: Other varieties of caps can be made available when the need arises. Living History groups who portray specific units that require a specific cap can make requests here. Also, if you are planning on attending an event, were a unit is being portrayed requiring special made head gear (ie. Ist Rhode Island wearing a State Issue Chasseur Style Cap, Etc.), this is a place for those requests.

This is a good example of the use of replacement materials to cover shortages with many items during the Civil War. At times during the conflict, leather was scarce and oil cloth was used in its place. This kepi is made of jeans cloth chosen from our stock on hand. However, the bill is made of oil cloth covered paste board as well as oil cloth sweatband & chin strap. Lining of osnaburg.
