This slouch hat was worn by John Mosby. According to Virgil Carrington Jones, author of Grey Ghosts and Rebel Raiders, this hat was left behind in a house in Rector’s Cross Roads, Virginia, where Mosby was seriously wounded by a detachment of federal cavalry in December, 1864. Forty years later, it was returned to him by the daughter of a 13th New York Cavalry officer.
