RE: [War Of 1812] "Give"
- Yes sir, you are quite correct!
Maybe it was a "here have a free coat for only $20"

Be very careful using the word "GIVE"
According to returns from the 1st Regiment Essex Militia and 1st
Regiment Kent Militia the Militiamen were charged for those coats.
They were charged for new coats even tho they were cast offs and one
militiaman complained his had no sleves!
Give . . . I fear NOT!
