I am working on a project to build this contingent for use in the revolutionary period. For those familiar with this era, there is limited definitive information available on this contingent including uniforms. I have been searching for details,and thought I would reach out to the collective mind here at TMP to see if any fellow gamers have more details on these troops and uniforms that they would be willing to share.
