Two Rebel Hats By Fred Adolphus, May 28, The slouch hat is one of the most enduring icons of the Confederate soldier, ranking alongside his kepi, bedroll, shell jacket and pants cuffs tucked into his socks.
Indeed, the slouch hat came to be the quintessential American military campaign headgear by the end of the Civil War, meeting with both universal usage and approval during the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War and World War One. It was superseded by the helmet once American troops got to France inand remained marginalized until the Vietnam War, when it made a huge come-back as the jungle hat.

This headgear was so comfortable that it was never fully replaced by the military cap and was, in fact, retained by most soldiers throughout the war, even as caps became readily available.
Greene, a Union officer escaping from Camp Ford prison in East Texas, drives this point home with his comments on the universality of the wool hat, stating, "As a disguise, we donned the gray jacket and wool hat of the Confederate uniform, which had been obtained through the assistance of negroes, and bidding our comrades farewell, we passed out of the stockade The focus of this study is on the latter: These were simple and cheap, made of felted wool, rather than higher-quality rabbit hair.
