Uniforms of the American Legion


Does anyone have a citation for an illustrated reference to uniforms of the early American army? I'd like officer and infantry garb for the 1790's.

Thanks,
Janet

The American Legion was a Loyalist regiment.

Maybe so, Belisarius, but the first U.S. Army was called the American Legion.

Nick, I think that depiction is 1815 or later.

Carlisle Blues, that's it! Thanks, I tried to open that site before posting here, but it must have been down for some reason.

I'm going to try my hand at a graphic novel. Let's get the kids interested in history.
