Civil War Hats-Civil War Caps

Soldiers wearing kepisAs you look down you notice the Civil War hat of a fallen soldier, a Confederate cap lying beside Union hats.  You look out across the battle field to see it is littered with broken, dying men and Civil War caps and hats.  Among the rifles and bodies are hundreds of American Civil War hats each representing a life, a soldier.  You stoop down to touch the rim of the Civil War cap beside you.  It is stained with blood and you say a guilty prayer of thanks that it isn’t yours.

Our fascination with the bloodiest war ever fought on American soil knows no bounds, yet most of us cannot truly imagine the significance of the above scene.  One of the most memorable, touching and exciting ways to experience this era of American history is by participating in a reenactment.  As you will quickly discover, the uniform is an immensely important detail when preparing for a reenactment.  Civil War cavalry hats will add to your reenactment look.  And the Civil War hats you will find at HatsRCool are the ideal way to start piecing together your Civil War uniform.
