Scene from Northwest Passage
Time for a little Robert Rogers as seen in the movies. Notice the diamond pattern on his cross belt - obviously those studio props that Benjamin West and so on used in their depiction of Rogers had their influence over the years. Some even thought it was a badge of rank but that is mere fantasy. This scene looks like it inspired the cover of Tim Todish's book 'America's First First World War'. The zigzag crossbelts turn up on this image too! See more images of this beaded belt here.
