Questions regarding the British Soldier during the Revolutionary War: 1. On the average how many miles would a soldier march a day---I have heard of estimates between 8-25 miles a day— Yes, I know some days they didn’t march but during campaigns to and from battle to the next--- ( I may have already answered my own question)--- even 10 miles a day is humping it-- especially in those type shoes and all the equipment they had to haul (they didn’t have Asics/New Balance walking shoes or even nice hiking shoes------ these guy had to be really fit if you think about it. 2. In addition from his haversack, musket, canteen, cartridge box, bayonet---- which I am guessing would weigh about 25lbs. total –How much more weight would a soldier be required to carry( camp equipment etc… if any). ---I read somewhere where Roman Legionary for example would have to carry an additional 60-80 pounds of camp equipment on top of their personal equipage. 3. Rations---- what is the typical 1 DAY field ration ---and about how many calories would that be estimated? 4. I am uncertain about the rum rations given, but was the rum rations basically used to sterilize the water in their canteen for the most part---correct me if I am wrong---I have heard different takes on this.
