I can't for the life of me figure out the word that's used in the document to indicate the type of hat. Looking at other words written by the J.P. who wrote the document, it sure looks like Mcarnona or Mcarnova (the soldier's name was McCune and the Mc looks the same).<
I read it as "Mcarona." Think of the song, "Yankee Doodle," and do a web search for "macaroni hat."
