The pattern of 1861 forage cap was the style cap issued to most of the enlisted men in Berdan's Regiment of US Sharp Shooters. The cap body is made from our Dark Green Wool and features the round sloping crescent shaped leather brim. A Brown polished cotton lining is standard. We also offer the same cap body style with the smaller "kepi" style brim. Berdan Officer's wore Kepi caps in Dark Green Wool with the Black Braid on them.
Only the best quality leather pieces are used in all our caps.
Berdan caps are custom made for each order. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
