    Union Forage Cap Exhibiting Original Insignia for Co K, 23rd Regiment. Nice honest forage cap exhibiting the original 5/8" silvered false embroidered letter "K" and 3/8" silvered false embroidered number "23". Wool body shows a moderate amount of moth holes, no chin strap. Thick leather visor unstitched for 2" on one side. Interior missing its sweatband but full brown polished cotton lining intact. The cap surfaced in the Waverly New York area giving the cap a likely association with the 23rd New York Volunteers who were recruited in that area. The regiment served for two years, seeing action and taking causalities at Second Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam and Fredericksburg.
