Re: [Revlist] Dansey Tent/Baggage Item Question-see images
- This description is not completely unlike what the Hogarth engraving shows.
The valises or bags associated with George Washington’s tents as depicted by
Lossing are over-sized sacks like duffle bags, with what i take to be a
leather handle on the visible end, and ropes from end to end and around the
middle to secure the bundle, working in principle not unlike today’s
camper’s sleeping bag sacks.
