Building FIW units for Muskets and Tomahawks. Read on Kronoskaf that bearskin hats did not appear until 1759. By then it would be unlikely any ended up in North America.

If the French Grenadiers wore tricornes like Kronoskaf says, what would distinguish a grenadier from a line company?

Gotta agree with Frederick and Royston, mustaches and swords would be the keys.
