    Confederate Enlisted Slouch Hat Picked up on the Gettysburg Battlefield by a Member of the 107th Ohio Vol. Inf. The hat is accompanied by an old 1 1/8" X 5 7/8" typewritten note, now mounted on cardboard, with the following provenance, "This Rebel Hat was found after the Battle of Gettysburg near Culp's Hill by J. Bucher." (Image of card now posted on web site.) John Bucher served with the 107th Ohio, from 9/9/62 to muster out on 7/13/65. The 107th lost 220 officers and men at Chancellorsville and 400 out of 550 effectives in action on the 1st and 2nd days at Gettysburg, capturing the battleflag of the 8th Louisiana Tigers. The hat is of heavy brown wool felt, and appears to have been fabricated for folding. The edge is bound with a hand stitched 3/16" wide brown silk tape. There is a 7/16" wide brown silk hat band. The lightweight pigskin sweat band is 2 1/4" high, hand stitched, and in excellent condition but showing some obvious signs of wear. The hat is overall in excellent, untouched, sound condition, just exhibiting some 'moth tracking' on the exposed portion of the brim. Very impressive and very Confederate. An important addition to any Gettysburg or general Confederate collection with a superb history.
