    Jan 15th was National Hat Day. :( But we get another chance. National Wear A Hat Day is on March 26th. :)

    The first “known” pictorial documentation of a hat is in a Thebes tombs wall-painting of an ancient Egyptian.

    Come to think of it, I've never seen a depiction of a caveman wearing a hat, have you? :confused:

    On his head was a 20cm tall hat made of bear fur which had leather chin straps, found in the Alps in 1991, and is 5300 years old.

    Sergeant Duckett’s Hat

    "There is a gleam in his eye; the slight smile partially obscured by his goatee reveals a certain smugness under that old weather beaten, bullet-torn hat, a relic of his service in a war fought fifty years before when he was a much younger man. Though the body may have aged, it does not appear to have dimmed his spirit. He sits rather demurely for the cameraman in the heat and dust, proud of his service and proud to be a Confederate veteran".

    Confederate Veteran T.J. Duckett in 1913

    "In 1913, he accompanied other veterans of the Palmetto State to Gettysburg to partake in the Great Reunion, held during the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and packed within his luggage was his worn hat- possibly the only relic he kept from the war. On it he painted a small Confederate battle flag with his name and the battle where a Yankee bullet ripped through the crown of his hat- one that a few inches lower would have taken his life".
