Green Mountain Rangers

Following up from Christine's piece about Vermont's Revolutionary battle I thought it might be worth looking at the iconic Green Mountain Boys. This quote from here gives details of the uniform.
Aug. 15, 1775, Congress "Resolved that when the Green Mountain Boys are raised each shall be furnished with a coat; and that Mr. Peter T. Curtenius be requested to purchase coarse green cloth for that purpose, and red cloth sufficient to face the coats, and to have two hundred and twenty-five coats of a large size made of the said cloth."
