Insignia of Independence:

Gettysburg, PA: Thomas Publications, 2012. First edition. Hardback. Heavily illustrated with color and BW images on 312 pages.  "Insignia of Independence is a heavily illustrated magnum opus that reconstructs the appearance of the armies of the American Revolution in painstaking detail. The two leading authorities on 18th-century Anglo-American military material culture, Don Troiani and James Kochan, have produced a reference work that is bound to be hailed as an instant classic. This comprehensive catalog of military buttons; gorgets; and belt, cap, and cartridge box plates is augmented by expert commentary, photographs of the original artifacts, and numerous period portraits, engravings, and drawings that provide the clearest impression yet of how the men who fought for and against American independence actually looked. Military historians, militaria collectors, museum curators, and reenactors will find this work an indispensable addition to their libraries." --Gregory J. W. Urwin, Professor of History, Temple University New. Item #27
