CW Kepi (Repro)

I’m a Brit who has started an interest in the American Civil War. Living in the UK it’s not easy coming across US Civil War items, and when I do they are far too expensive for me, so I try to look for museum quality replicas. I found this reproduction CW Kepi, can anyone help me identify the cap, did it belong to a particular regiment, or unit, the only markings I can find are the buttons and a X cross stitching on the head band.

The blue Kepi, would of course belong to a Federal or Union soldier, better known as a (Yankee). The bugle atop the cap would signify the Infantry branch of service, and the Eagle I' button on the strap would again signify that the soldier was an Infantryman. The I' would identify the Infantry, an A', the Artillery, the C', the Cavalry, or a D', the Dragoons. Welcome to the forum, and Thank You for your interest in American History. Our Battle of Gettysburg came to a close in a little Pennsylvania town 160 years ago today.
