Re: US militia officers insignia
I suggest you contact Steve Abolt who operates Allegheny Arsenal on
St. Simons Island, GA, USA either by phone at 912 - 638 2842 or
by email at sacbg7 (at) lynchburg.net (this Yahoo group does not
support email addresses so add @ to the address)
Mr. Abolt has made USA Forces uniforms both Regular and Militia for
sites, re-enactors, historians, etc.
His work is impeccable and he creates from original documentation.
If you really want a uniform that is what "they wore" contact Mr.
Abolt, also his research, as many on this Yahoo Group, is worth the
