stephen210, In my humble opinion Hitch's headwear is a Confederate Civil War artillery officers kepi. Red was to signify that soldier was in the artillery. Check out these sites;

The number of braids would indicate the rank of the person wearing it, in Hitch's case it would be for a Lieutenant. I hope this helps.
