[Uniforms] 1833 US Forage Cap Ref Request.

Greeting to All,

I seek information re the construction details of the leather US 1833 Forage cap - dragoon or infantry model.

My basic documentation is the article in:

Howell & Kloster “United States Army Headgear to 1854, Catalog of United States Army Uniforms in the Collections of the Smithsonian Institution. Volume I.” (United States National Museum Bulletin 269) Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1969

If someone would send me (via mail or as an Emil attachment) a copy of:

Todd, Frederick P. "The Leather Forage Cap at West Point," Military Collector & Historian (June 1954) vol. 6, no.2 pp. 38-40.

I would be very grateful.

I welcome suggestions for other references. Are there any photos of existing examples on the web?

Thank you,

Tom Lundy
