Assembling your Gear

If you are new to re-enacting, we urge restraint in purchasing items. Common people in the 18th century owned very few possessions by our standards. In particular, when on campaign, the Rangers brought only what they could carry on their person. The list on the left indicates all the items you need: for a convincing impression we suggest you limit your buying to only those pieces.

This list is the beginning of a more comprehensive guide to the kit. We will be linking each item to articles that describe each piece in detail, as they are written.

At events, all modern or anachronistic items must be hidden or stored during public hours.
