I'm aware of a few units wearing the Prussian style pickelhaube of various models in the years following the War Between the States (1861-1865), mostly New York, Rhode Island, and California militia units. Basically seeking specific documentation and photographs of which units who wore them inorder to complete my study for an upcoming article for the journal. Already have one of the McKinny Tobacco cards showing the Rhode Island Marine Artillery wearing a pickelhaube. I have four of these helmets and compiled some photos of them in use. Any assistence would highly be appreciated.
