I am new to the forum and am looking into reenacting. To that end I have this question: As I look for headgear, I have noticed that both the kepi and the forage cap were both worn by enlisted soldiers. I understand that the kepi was a privately purchased item, but how prevalent was the kepi? Was it widely used? And which version of the forage cap was used the most?Really open-ended, I know, so I am not expecting precise info, just an idea. I am looking into a Wisconsin or Minnesota unit. (I assume that the use and availability of each type varied from unit to unit as well as the time period portrayed.) Thank you in advance for your input!
