Union McDowell style Kepi


Recommended Posts

I was finally able to pick up one of my bucket list CW items this week. This is a private purchase Union kepi popular with senior NCO and officers. It is often referred to as a McDowell style kepi by collectors. It's in really good condition and looks great displayed with my CW Union shell jackets. No insignia on this one or indications that insignia was stitched or pinned to it. The buttons are general service buttons, so it would be appropriate for an EM or NCO of any branch.

Very nice looking forage cap! It’s great to get an item on your bucket list. I love ACW forage caps and I’m sure this looks great with your collection.

Great original Civil War piece is superb condition. I wonder if it was some of old Bannerman's surplus.
