Uniforms of the Continental Army by Philip Katcher
"There is no other source available today that matches the thoroughness and accuracy of Phil Katcher's book." - D. Williams
A source book about the Revolutionary War Uniforms, 1775-1783. It treats the great variety of costumes put to service, from regimentals of European influence to the informal hunting shirts so widely used.
Quotations from period documents show the constant struggle that went on to keep the men supplied with the bare necessities of clothing, and toward the end of the war to have some uniformity to the uniforms.
