    Description

    Union Eleventh Corps Slouch Hat With A Red Crescent Device. This Union slouch hat is from the Eleventh Corps, First Division which fought at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. The division was routed by Confederate General Stonewall Jackson's troops and suffered a similar fate at the hands of General Jubal Early's Confederate forces at Gettysburg. Made up largely of German-American troops, the Eleventh later fought at Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. Stephen Crane, the author of the Civil War set Red Badge of Courage reportedly used the setting of Chancellorsville and the action of the Eleventh Corps in his fictionalized version of the conflict.

    This blue felt slouch hat is decorated with a red crescent badge emblematic of the First Division and is in overall fair condition. There are wear holes at the top of the crown near the badge and there is no liner. This is an historic item from a notable Corps that saw service at key battles of the Civil War.
