Revolutionary War

Clothing



1770's American Uniforms


 

Just to picture an average American Infantryman in the mid to late war he would probably have a Jacket, Riflemanís shirt or Work Smock, Waistcoat, Shirt, Overalls, Shoes and Snap Brim or Cocked hat.  He would be equipped with a Musket, have a Cartridge Box, Sling, or Belly Box on a belt, have a Bayonet and an axe on a baldric suspension.  He would have a Knapsack slung high, as well as a tin or wooden canteen.  He might have a knapsack of either pattern and within this, in addition to his blanket, extra shirt, stockings, and sundries, might be a Regimental Coat.  A tin cup and perhaps a pot would be fastened to his gear somewhere.  In cold weather, he would wear the Regimental coat over everything and add mittens.  He could have either the Half gaitors or wool leggings.  Bear in mind that this composite can be modified to  portray a worn out Continental with nothing left or a Militiaman with more uniform and equipment than he can keep up with.

Revolutionary War Regimental Coat

From Brigade of the American Revolution patterns and other sources.  Coats of this type were the standard for armies the world over. In America they were issued to both patriot and loyalist units. The Regimental reaches nearly to the knee and has back split and side vents.  Please specify the number of buttons you need on the front. The cuffs are functional with buttons. Lapels are also functional with button holes carefully tailored to button into the cape (Collar). The coat was one color and the facings, lapels, and cuffs were another. The turnbacks were lined (usually in wool) with either the facing color or white. The body of the coat is lined with linen.  There are two functional pockets with  button holes.  The edges of the collar, cuff, lapels, and tail are left raw.
