The 69th fought in many major battles and experienced significant action during the Civil War, beginning with the Siege of Yorktown in April 1862 on through the surrender at Appomattox Court House in April 1865. The 69th lost the greatest number of men killed or wounded of any of the New York regiments. The unit still exists today!
This kepi would make a great talking piece for your man/woman cave, study, New York Office, Store, Military instillation, Barbers or similar places of work or play!
