Re: Confederate "Hardee" hats?
There is the famous photo taken at Gettysburg, that back in the day had originally been id'd as "dead from the Iron Brigade", depicting Confederate KIA laid out for burial ( it appears in Frassanito's book)...The reason for the misidentification is that one of the dead Confederates has an old battered Hardee hat partially covering his face. Obviously some Rebs did wear them...Best regards.

No need of writing then but we can talk and talk again, and my boy can talk to me and I will never tire of listening to him and he will want to go with me everywhere I go, and I will be certain to let him go if there is any possible chance."
