    May the Hardee hats have the plumes and brass, or must they have no decorations?

      Hi Jason!

      I apologize for the delay but I am just now seeing this post.

      The "hats" that the 9th Ohio Infantry were issued wasn't an actual Hardee hat but is what is actually known as the "Ohio Fatigue Hat". Hardee Hats are being accepted as a reasonable accommodation as there are not many "Ohio Fatigue Hats" out in the hobby at this time. There is potential for a run of these being done for Die Neuner which will be announced at a later date.

      Regarding your question about brass, if you are wearing a Hardee Hat, please try to use one in a new, relatively unused condition and without brass/plumes. Letters from the original guys mention them receiving "hats without feathers".

      Let me know if you have any further questions!

        I have heard about these hats. Weren't they styled after the hats worn by Garibaldi's men?

          What was the difference? The only picture I could find looked like the crown was lower and the soldier had the brim rolled. That was done with 1858 Hardee's often.. I see Dirty Billy has a Hardee US #36 that is a Cincinnati Depot but it looks pretty similar to a 1858. I e-mailed them for clarification but no response. I figure if I'm going to get a '42 Smoothbore and .69 caliber box and bayonet for this event,I might as well have the right hat.

            Is it OK if I use an 1855 Springfield repro for this event? It is currently the only rifle I have. I will be falling in with Colin Zimmerman's company.

              Hey Joe! Sorry for the delay. I have attached an excellent photo showing the "Hardee Style" hat that was being issued to the other early Ohio regiments being formed around the same time as the 9th OVI. If my memory is correct, I believe this guy is from the 8th OVI.
