Secession Cockades were worn in the 1860s by anyone who sympathized with the southern cause. Civilian ladies and gentlemen, military men, children, and even horses and wagons were adorned with these patriotic symbols.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
