Texas Hat Pin
Our Texas Hat Badge is made of solid brass and is approximately 1-1/4" by 1-1/4", with pin-back attachment. After
seceding from the United States, Texas was most useful for supplying
soldiers to Confederate forces as well as to the Cavalry. During the war
Texas was mainly a supply state for the Confederacy until mid-July
1863, when the Union capture of the Mississippi River
made large movements of men, horses or cattle impossible. The last
battle of the Civil War occurred in Texas at the Battle of Palmito Ranch
on May 12-13, 1865.
Original gold-plated Texas Hat Pin found at Dinwiddie, VA.
