Revolutionary War uniform expert Phil Weaver will discuss the regimental coat worn by the Colonel-Commandant of Fort Schuyler, Peter Gansevoort Jr. of the 3rd New York Regiment. Attendees will learn of this man’s personal story and his regimental coat that many experts initially believed to be some sort of unknown oddball. Some even thought it was German. Using period documentation, photographs of surviving garments, pattern elements, and period portraiture, Mr. Weaver will demonstrate the coat is indicative of one of several styles worn during the period. Reservation required.
