"Collections of Revolutionary War artifacts seldom contain the history of individual items. Who used it? Where was it used? That information is lost. A Sketch of the Virginia Soldier in the Revolution identifies which uniforms and equipment were used by reviewing the documentary evidence. Military records, newspapers, journals and letters provided data from which a 'sketch' of the soldier's appearance was drawn. Rather than create a generic soldier, this work concentrates on the infantryman from Virginia. After determining what equipment was used by the Virginians, examples are presented and discussed." - back cover.
