A fine reproduction of the cap given to General Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson by his wife Anna in early 1862. This cap is currently at the VMI Museum in Lexington, Virginia. Originally the cap was cadet grey in color but has now faded to an almost tan color. Some evidence of the original grey color is still visible under the "floppy" part of the front.
Research based on an extract from the Diary of Major Jed Hotchkiss, dated Dec 10, 1862, and corroborated by Hotchkiss in May 1893. Thanks to Mr. Harry McNeer for recently providing this information. Our cadet grey wool will not fade like Gen'l Jackson's original cap, so we offer the cap in both "as new" and "as faded" versions.Our caps are made using top quality wool and lined with black polished cotton. The dark blue band receives a 1/2" gold lace and is then sewn to the cap. The leather brim has a thin strip of leather binding the front edge. Adjustable leather chin strap with Virginia State Seal buttons on the sides. Buttons on original cap have a flower design, however, we are not able to duplicate this button. Both Jackson caps are custom made for each order. Custom Caps are not returnable. Please allow 5-6 weeks for delivery.
