There have actually been three different 5th Maryland Infantry regiments. The first existed from about 1775 to 1861, when it disbanded and entered confederate service.The second was a Union regiment from the western part of the state, composed almost entirely of German immigrants, which existed only during the Civil War Era. The third was organized in 1867 (hence the date on the front plate) from Confederate veterans and existed until the beginning of WW2 when it was re-designated 175th U. As worn by the 5th Maryland National Guard during the later 19th century.
The hat is constructed of fiber material with felt covered exterior, a patent leather visor with a brass visor rim. Features leather trim and top with an original feather plume. The leather liner with cloth extension is present.
