I recently had the privilege of visiting the new American Revolution Museum, again, in Yorktown where I live. This day the Regimental Uniforms were being displayed by staff. Above, volunteer Joyce explains that the British regimental uniform is one most American will recognize -- the "Redcoat" jacket.

Can you see the pocket in the photo on the right? Go straight up from where my name is on the picture, to about halfway up.
Can you imagine how long it would have taken to have sewn these coats by hand? And this American regimental jacket is very heavy. The wool is woven tightly enough to resist water, still. . .
THANKS, Joyce, for helping me get these pictures!
Question: Do you have any plans to visit the new American Revolution Museum in Yorktown? Do you have any questions I could research for you there, for your visit?
