US M-1858 FORAGE CAP
In 1858, the coloured welt around the top was removed by the Army Uniform Board making the cap easier to warehouse, and this was the US army cap that was worn in the initial stages of the war. Our 1858 forage cap features the correct Shako style leather brim which covers the eyes quite well from the sun. Made from our quality 19 oz dark blue field service wool blend and lined in black cotton. Leather brim, sweatband and adjustable chinstrap with brass slide and US Eagle side buttons. Available in three sizes.
