American Civil War Blue Kepi Forage Company B / 10 Cap Reproduction

Officers wore the slouch style Forage Bummer cap. 

A forage cap is a type of headgear that is used predominantly by military personnel . Over time, the term forage cap was used to refer military headgear that is used for situations that do not require a formal, or dress, uniform hat.The term forage cap may also refer to the specific style of uniform hats worn by the armies of the United States of America and the Confederate States of America during the period before and after the American Civil War of 1861-1865. As France was one of the dominant military powers of that era, French uniform design influenced the military uniform designs of other nations, including the United States, which adopted the kepi.Although commonly referred to as a kepi, the forage cap of the American Civil War actually evolved separately from the kepi. Without the structure provided by the sides, the top of the forage cap often appeared to flop down and forward and were often referred to as slouch caps or bummer caps.Related topicsWhile not typically considered as smart in appearance as the kepi, the forage cap was often believed to be more comfortable and provide more protection from the elements than the kepi.
