Phrygian caps don’t seem to have been popular before the Revolutionary War; I found only one reference when I was doing research on Liberty Trees and Poles for Alfred Young's book LIBERTY TREE, and that was a representation of a cap instead of a real one. But they were definitely popular as symbols of Jeffersonian politics around 1800. I don't know the evidence about them during the war, though of course they might have both a political and a practical value for soldiers on campaign.
