Civil War Clothing
Looking for a Civil War hat or gloves to complete your Civil War outfit? Medieval Collectibles carries both Union and Confederate hats as well as Civil War gloves. The Kepi was officially called a forage cap and then was nicknamed 'bummers cap' by troops. They named it that because if was often described as shapeless as a feedbag. It became the most common form of cap worn by U.S. regulars and volunteers during the American Civil War. It was also worn by Union troops in dark blue, various shades of grey and butternut for Confederate troops. Our Civil War gauntlets are made of top grain cowhide leather and are available in three different sizes. The Civil War gloves are natural color and will protect your hands during that sword fight. Civil War gauntlets were worn to protect the hands for riding horses, sword fights, and getting a firm grip on their rifle.
