Re: [Uniforms] American Pickelhauben

Alex, I hope that your research on the 1881 helmet includes Edgar M. Howell, United States Army Headgear, 1855-1902 (Washington: Smithsonian Institution, 1975). Also, see the front page of the 18 Oct 1881 NYT for its comments on the "perfect rage for the Prussian pickelhauben among the Militia, in which an evil example has been set by the regulars."
