All of our
uniforms and equipment have been thoroughly researched and documented. As a unit we have
identified resources to either create or purchase various required accoutrements and supplies. Within the
hobby are a variety of sutlers (vendors) who make and sell every imaginable item needed to
accurately portray our 18th century counterparts. To offset costs, our members will create
certain portions of their kit using either available patterns or company gear as samples.
Sutlers can be
found at most events, on the web, or through hobby related magazines.
As the start up
costs can sometimes be prohibitive, the unit will often loan a uniform, tent and musket to
new members when they join. A new member is usually expected to have the basics soon after
joining and purchase the "larger" items by the second season.
recommend that any interested parties contact the unit before making a purchase of a
musket, tent or item of clothing.
