    There is a you tube set of History vids by a man named Brandon, many on ARW. He wears the same coat you have with the GAU green facing. I was at an event last week and there was a continental there. And I was talking to him about facing colors and regiments. He was unfamiliar with it and stated he was anxious to go look it up when he got home.
    What regiment are you on, that has that green facings)
    (GAU green is God awful ugly, similar with a green Stetson I saw growing up that was described as Barn Yard Green though we gave it a more barn yard pronouceation )

    Well there is the 5th regiment which has "gosling green" facings [goose crap green]. They also sport white-metal buttons with a "V". The 19th was a very dark green facing, as was the 24th, 45th, and 49th, and several others. I'm in olive facings which are similar to the 54th, but they had a green stripe through the lacing around the buttons and buttons marked "54". My coat was a generic coat issued to loyalist troops, from Maryland and Pennsylvania. There is some debate that there should not be square white lace [white rectangles] around the button holes for a provincial coat. The previous year in the war we were issued green coats with white facings.

    OK, here's the first bit of Kit I put together. It's basically what I wore when I first took up reenactments in Vermont and when I first joined the forum. This is at a Primitive Biathlon in January of 2005. Didn't realize tat the time that my Traditions Pennsylvania Longrifle was NOT historically correct for Revolutionary War era. Bothered me more than anyone else as I was never turned away. I also didn't realize just how slippery moccasins were in the snow!

    I'm actually wearing the green Rifleman's shirt with a white and green checked shirt under it; green breeches; green wool, knee length socks; deerskin moccasins; and ox-leather leggings.

    [​IMG]

    Moved to Virginia in June 2005 and settled in the Blue Ridge Mts. south of Roanoke. This is 2006. I've changed my hat to the Virginia Round Hat , which was de rigueur for Virginians during the Rev War era. Also made a new set of buckskin side-seam leggings (no fringe) Bought a pair of straight last half-boots too.
    [​IMG]

    My kit changed significantly while I was in Virginia. My Hunting shirt changed from that Green Cotton Canvas to Linen and I purchased a much more period correct Early Lancaster rifle from "tg" who was a member of the forum back then. Also got a natural color linen shirt to go along with the green and white checked cotton one I already had. This shot was from a reenactment at the Smithfield Plantation on the Virginia Tech Campus. The University was literally built around it.

    [​IMG]

    And then here's my attempt at some real authenticity. The Guilford Courthouse reenactment in Greensboro, NC had just finished in Mid-March 2009 , and it had rained all weekend. Notice how soaked the capes on my hunting shirt are. I was carefully trudging up a steep and muddy hill to the parking lot above, when I spotted a particularly muddy area ahead and thought I better try to go around it.

    There were lots of fallen leaves off the side of the trail and I should have known better than to step on them. I was only about 20-ft. from the top when I stepped off trail. Come to find out that was far more slippery than the patch of mud ahead of me. I slipped and fell. Managed to turn over on my butt as I slid the next 50-feet or so down the hill.

    [​IMG]

    The back was, of course, worse:
    [​IMG]


    I was warded the nickname of "Mr. Muddy from a couple of my friends when I finally made it up the hill.

    I have made one more change in my kit and that was getting a pair of linen overalls (drop-front rifleman's trousers), but don't seem to have a picture of them around.

    Mr. Mad Irish Jack,

    That sling on the gun in your portrait looks kinda familiar!

    Not an exact match but close. It was on a Tulle. I sold it to a Cajan, retired AIr Force vet who lives about 100 straight north of New Orleans, LA. I have the same style with a different pattern for my remaining long guns. I now have a couple Early Lancaster long guns; a.54 cal rifle and a .54 cal/28 ga smooth rifle. Both have Colerain swamped 44" barrels and Davis trigger sets and L&R locks.
