As much as they once loved it, many puritans left New England for the promise of the west due to changes in culture and politics in the region. This westward expansion of America would one day lead to opening the west. The main vehicle for this massive human migration was the wagon train. One of the most iconic images of that era was the Puritan woman, wearing a large bonnet to help cover her face from the punishing son as they set out in search of a new home.
Historical reenactors and theater groups are often tasked with finding costume props that fit the moment with exacting authenticity. This is exactly what you see with this Black Puritan wagon train hat. It is made from professional-quality fabrics that are easy to clean and maintain, all at a price that won’t break a wheel in your performance budget.
