Confederate Civil War Kepi

Need a rebel kepi? Here’s a closer look at a confederate reproduction kepi.   Made of wool, with cotton lining.

Ever wonder why it’s called a kepi?   Both the cap and the name itself comes from the French.   The French re-spelled the word kappe, which itself means “cap”.   Its origins began as early as the 1830s in the French military.

In the United States, the kepi is heavily associated with the Civil War, and its use also continued into the Indian Wars.
