Union Officer Hardee

Lot 2200

J.E.B. Stuart wore an identical Hardee hat made by the very same French maker, "Latour and Prince - Paris" however this General Officer's Hat was worn by Union General Thomas Welsh of the 9th Corps

While J.E.B. Stuart's Hardee hat is on permanent display at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, this is the finest known US General Officer's Hardee Style hat in private hands. It is in immaculate condition and comes with its original wooden hat box with a label on the lid "General Thomas Welsh - Dress Hat." Welsh commanded the Ninth Corps' First Division during the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi and died shortly after the battle of malarial fever. He was appointed brigadier general just a few months before he died. Welsh must have only worn this magnificent hat a few times, as it is in the condition that collectors dream of. It has a tall Jeff Davis-style 7 inch high crown with an ostrich plume, a cockade, a black silk band on the brim, a gold thread general officer's bullion hat cord, a mint "US" within a wreath badge on the front of the hat and an equally magnificent gold bullion side Eagle (see back cover) that holds up the right side of the brim. The black sweat bank measures 2-5/8 inches with a gold stamped maroon lining that is flawless and embossed in gold lettering Deux Medailles de La Classe - "Chapeau Excelsior" - Latour and Prince, Paris. From the Norm Flayderman collection $28,000
