Local group presents historic artifact to Washington, D.C. museum

A cap from the 1800s has been presented to a Washington, D.C. museum group from the Owasco Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

The DAR, a women’s service organization, presented the cap Saturday to David Price, executive director of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, Clara Barton Missing Solider Office Museum, and Pry House Field Hospital. The chapter is donating the cap for 90 days, during which time it will be researched. Helen Lyons, regent of the chapter, said she expects the chapter will donate the cap to the museums afterward.
