Stovepipe Shako Blank source???
- Some time ago I asked if a certain sutler in Canada had any Stovepipe felt
blanks for the shako. I contacted the sutler by email several times but never
heard back. Does anyone have a source on these? The 5th Md. and Fell's Point
Rifles/1st Md. Rifle Bn. have just taken on a number of recruits and need a
number of these. We just need the felt cylinder/body, and can take it from there.
As a shameless plug, we have a web site under construction. Hopefully
this link will come through. Still has a good bit to go on it, but you can get
some idea. The group has devoted this year to recruiting and equipping. We
hopefully will have a good turnmout for Jefferson Patterson Park, even if we have
to strip the dead for clothing and gear/guns!

faces. Listed on our web site are our current portrayals, check them out, each

and so on. See you there!
