National Park Mystery Photo 29: Pretty Fancy Headwear, No?

A rich array of historical clothing items can be found in the National Park System, but what do you make of this? And where can you see it today?

Headgear imposed on White House guards during the Nixon regime.

No, 'fraid not. Creative, but not the answer we're looking for.

I'd say Civil War era cavalry due to the crossed swords. Perhaps Getysburg?

How about the bunkhouse at Ft. Laramie?

Oh, and it's either from the cavalry or infantry that was stationed there during the Indian wars of the late 1800's.

Blackfeet Dreamer is right about Civil War-era, Lee Dalton nailed the location. Tomorrow we'll provide some more details.

It's calvary alright, about 1865. Fort Laramine did not have the treaty signed until 1869. That is a privates, full dress uniform hat.
