My Great Great uncles work uniform ?


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am hoping I can get assistance with the uniform my uncle is wearing in the pic on the left. I have been given stellar information on the one on the right and I am currently studying that uniform (M1881 helmet) for a future purchase, But while I am finding officers models, I not seeing many enlisted version for the 2nd Cavalry. I will continue my search for that . In the mean time I would like to look for what he is wearing in the pic on the left. Could I get the exact year and model of what cap and uniform he is wearing? I figure I can research/pursue that option while waiting to find my holy grail.

 

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

This pic is circa 1891 from my research and assistance given here.

I would have added this to the above post but my edit function timed out. I also wanted to change "work" uniform to utility.

Could I get a recommendation on a reseach publication to study about this uniform?

Thank you Matt,

Do you know of any reference books that I might get?

I would like one that can help ID reproductions looking at the prices I found on the Kepi.

 

The one BEAST posted is the only uniform reference book I've ever seen for the Indian War period.

Good luck with your quest, I wouldn't know where to begin.

Thank you Gent's,

I appreciate your time and knowledge shared.

And thank you Beast for the book recommendation . It also looks like the same author also wrote this one.

Hats Off: Head Dress of the U.S. Army 1872-1912 ' I just picked up a copy of A Guide Book to U.S. Army Dress Helmets 1872-1904 Mark Kasal and Don Moore and the above mentioned book was also recommended. Looks like my library is going to grow a little bigger. I might try inter library loan for these to see if they are worth adding. I'm glad you like the pic's Beast as much as I do. Thanks again to all. Semper Fi Phil.
