Revolutionary War
Styles for 1768 - 1783
Revolutionary War hats.  Hats of the period of the American War for Independence included cocked hats, round hats, fantail hats, cut down hats, ranger style hats and also Light Infantry hats.  We offer hats for soldiers, Marines, sailors and civilians. 

Hand sewn (Order codes "HS") hats are available in wool felt and fur felt and include hand sewn adjustable linen liners.  A handful of original Revolutionary War military hats have survived and are all in museums plus several private collections.  Books by George Neumann, Philip Katcher, Don Troiani/James Kochan, Marko Zlatich/Peter Copeland are among the premier sources for research and artwork on hats during the American Revolutionary War.  Additionally, the Military Uniforms in America (MUIA) plates by The Company of Military Historians are another exceptional resource.

We also offer machine sewn (Order codes "MS") Revolutionary War hats.  Our machine sewn styles are an economical alternative for entry-level reenactors, color guards, theater companies and others who do not require a hand sewn level of authenticity.

ORDERING NOTE: Hand Sewn Revolutionary War era hats are round blocked. Round blocked are small, medium, large or extra large. Send us your head size in inches. ALL MACHINE SEWN hats are OVAL BLOCKED.

SHIPPING: Effective January 1, 2014, all shipping and handling fees are INCLUDED for orders within the Continental USA. Outside the Continental USA, please provide your address and request as shipping quote. Thank you. Expedited shipping is extra.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, 90 DAYS FROM ORDER TO SHIP FOR ALL HATS.  If you need your hat in less than 90 days, expedite fees may be applicable.
