Civil War Ladies Caps

Ladies in the Civil War era often wore caps - around the house and occasionally when going out visiting or to church. Some were simple, plain lace caps. Others were highly decorated with ribbons and flowers. It was a good way to protect your hair and a chance to show off your handworking abilities.
