OT I've been watching reruns of Wagon Train, and one of the
characters wears a rebel cap, the kind worn I gather by Southern
Troops during the Civil War. (The kind that's higher in the back, but
crunched down in the front, and round, flat top and with a brim. Grey
I suppose but hard to tell on B&W shows.) And I think I've seen
others wearing the cap in other westerns.
Did anyone do that? I thought the west after the Civil War was full
of men from both north and south, and it would be looking for a fight
to dress obviously as from one side or the other. At least on TV,
they're always fighting anyhow, so why make it worse?
When I was in U.S. Navy boot camp, WWll time. There were 125 men in our
unit. 120 of them were from Georgia and Florida. I still have a problem
liking Southerners. All they would talk about is the South taking over. WW
