US Kepi – artillery
Kepis were worn by the US on campaign and for fatigue duty. The design varied from a tight-fitting cap resembling the one adopted by the French in the 1840s to a tall floppy “bummer’s cap” described by the troops as resembling a feedbag. The hat band was sometimes a contrasting color to the normal blue: yellow for cavalry, red for artillery. Made of wool, lined with a leather brim and chin strap.
