We are now proud to
carry caps made by Mike Anderson of Anderson Dry
Goods. Over several decades Mike has established a reputation of
quality and excellent customer service, and we have already received
several caps from Mike and they are all outstanding. We are
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.
