Need information on the headgear worn by Rhode Island troops during the AWI.

There's this famous image of an African American Rhode Island soldier wearing a Light Infantry type cap.


I will bet dollars to donuts that 90% of all depictions of soldiers wearing Light Infantry caps are of the Light Infantry Company, and the rest of the regiment wore plain cocked hats.
