Now available to those who reenact those sailors of the war, The Badge Maker offers this  long known nautical symbol, worn widely by sailors both North and South, to adorn your flat cap for shore leave.


A little history Regarding the Union Navy: uniform regulations were strictly bare aboard ship, but lenient on shore. Enlisted sailors took to adoring their shore leave uniforms with various forms of embroidery and accoutrements, from materials either purchased from sutlers or from whatever lands they happened t sail to.  Both Flat caps and Uniforms became a spectacle of whatever the sailor chose to sew on.
