Well I was a kid I used to flip through the gun magazines to see ads for Civil War merchandise . One of the items featured was a "Jeff Davis Hat " which was really a Hardee . I think it cost $15.00 and it came with your choice of service color chords ; red for artillery ,blue for infantry and yellow for cavalry . My friends and I thought it was the coolest thing ever but none of us ever got one . Now as an adult I have a Tim Bender Hardee and just looking at it makes me feel good . When I was at Corinth Oct.'05 I loooked at the hundreds of uniformed and armed reenactors and thought how incredible this hobby is and this just weeks after Hurricane Katrina devastated the very state we occupied .
All for the old flag,
