I have been on vacation, a week long family vacation. During that sojourn I ended up in a used bookstore and discovered these two books by John Elting and published by The Company of Military Historians. The first is "Military Uniforms in America; the Era of the American Revolution 1755-1795". The second is a companion volume "Military Uniforms in American; Years of Growth, 1796-1851". The first one is a nice add to the AWI book collection, the second is nice as it references years of American military history that I only have a vague knowledge of at this point.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
