Confederate Captain's Shako This woolen shako, a tall, cylindrically shaped military cap, bears a stamped brass bugle horn and the initials WR for Warrenton Rifles, a local militia unit that became Company K of the 17th Virginia Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. This hat belonged to Captain John Quincy Marr who died at the Battle of Fairfax Court House on June 1, 1861, just days short of his thirty-sixth birthday. Marr was the first Confederate officer killed during the war.

In the 1880 General Order No. 72 the forage cap with the large, rectangular, flat peak was replaced by the cap with the steeply sloping peak. This is sometimes referred to as the 'Station Master's' style. Below is one to the Leinster regiment.
