      Some quick things I wanted to throw out there when this discussion first started but for some reason never got around to:

      There is a Revolutionary War superhero comic series called The Black Coat that might be of interest: http://www.the-black-coat.com

      Also, since someone mentioned the Colonial Gothic RPG, there's a supernatural graphic novel that might be a good source of inspiration called Revere: Revolution in Silver where legendary silversmith Paul Revere is also a monster hunter pitted against both Red Coats and werewolves: http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=54754

      Somebody also mentioned there really was no equivalent to the Nazis during the Revolutionary War. In my Colonial Gothic games, I use German Hessians (I had one unit that all suffered from lycanthropy - they were wereboars) in that role. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hessian_%28soldiers%29

      Just some random thoughts I thought I'd share. :)
