C.S. Junior Officer (Lieutenant) Kepi - Infantry, American Civil War Men's Hat
    CS Officers have progressive rows of deluxe gold braid on the top, sides, front and back of the cap to indicate rank. A row of braid encircles the quatrefoil design on the top. Following the 1862 Confederate Regulations, the top and sides of the cap are in the branch of service colors and the lower band is in dark blue. Other color combinations can be made based on documentation. The standard braid pattern is shown on the Captain's and General's Kepis. In addition to the Deluxe Gold Soutache braid, we offer a Deluxe FLAT Gold braid at slightly higher cost.

    Corresponding rows of braid can be added horizontally at the top of the band, as pictured on the both Lieutenant's, the M1862 Senior Officer's and M1862 General's Kepis (adds $5.00 per row). Also, a leather binding can be added to the edge of the brim (adds $5.00). CS caps omit the brass slide on the adjustable chin strap that is seen on the Union caps.

    Branch insignia can be purchased separately.

    Branch of Service Colors: Artillery - Red, Cavalry - Yellow, Infantry - Light Blue, Medical - All Black or All Dark Blue, Staff - All Dark Blue.

Officer's Civil War & Indian Wars Hat Cords

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:25:07 EDT

Civil War and Indian Wars Staff and Filed Officers Hat Cord
Hand Twisted
    This is the Officer's Hat cord for the Hardee hat and Slouch Hats. Regulations call for a Gold and Black hat cord for all officer's except Generals who wear all gold, with the gold being gold bullion. It was used for both the American Civil War & Indian Wars. There is also a Non-Regulation Hat Cord of Gold Bullion and Branch Colors available for Officer's of the Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry.

Staff and Field Officers, Regulation: Black Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. On some of these the acorn is reversed with a gold bullion tip and black netting. This hat cord is available either in machine braided or hand twisted. The hand twisted is thicker cording.

General Officers, Regulation: Gold Bullion hat cord for all Generals.

Artillery, NON-Regulation:  Red Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord.

Cavalry, NON-Regulation:  Yellow Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord. This one looks very much like the Generals and you have to look close to see that there is yellow silk and it is not all gold bullion.

Infantry, NON-Regulation:  Light Blue Silk and Gold Bullion hat cord.
