Excellent article, thanks for posting it.

An oldy, but a goody. If you want to see how a Guards officer looked during the war, look at the Dodswell painting:


I've had a chance to view this portrait (it's big) up close a couple of times at Mount Vernon. The tents in the background are interesting as well.

One bit you can't see in most online photos the twisted silver cord that lines his facings, cuffs, collar, epaulets, and runs mysteriously along the waistline of the coat (no, it's not a pocket).

The portrait is on loan from Mount Vernon to the new Museum of the American Revolution in Philly. It opens soon.

Yep, great article.

HG, in your link, is that a Woodbridge rendering of the rifleman?
