Original U.S. Spanish American War Era New York Hussars Troop “A” Attilla Jacket
Original Item: Only One Available. This European inspired Hussar uniform was worn with pride by a member of Squadron A, New York Hussars in the year 1900. The squadron was established in 1884 by a group of wealthy young men as an equestrian club, however, after membership was extended to Captain Charles F.Roe, US Cavalry, their efforts were recognized by having 53 of their members inducted into the New York National Guard in 1889. They were frequently called for duty to provide escorts for Presidents and other notables visiting New York City. During the Spanish-American War Squadron A served in Puerto Rico and during WWI members of Squadron A earned 3 Medals of Honor, 17 Legions of Honor and 24 Croix de Guerre.
The uniform is a light blue-gray wool attila with black frogging and yellow trimmed cuffs and features an A on both sides of the yellow wool cuff style collar, denoting the squadron. Only damage to note is the cuff style collar stitching is coming undone and minor, very light staining, beyond that it is in remarkable condition.
