In 1855 Secretary of War Jefferson Davis was instrumental in the creation of two regiments of cavalry. It was recommended that the cavalry have a distinctive hat; it is sometimes called the Jeff Davis hat. It also was referred to as the Hardee hat, after William Joseph Hardee, an officer of the 2nd Cavalry. Ironically, while the hat would become part of the dress uniform of the Union, Davis and Hardee would go on to serve the Confederacy as President and Lieutenant General respectively.
