55th Foot Light Company

There's lot of interest to see on the 55th's Facebook page. Like this quote
"the Soldiers to parade with their packs, Camp keytles, tomahawks, and all their Accoutrements The Officers to see that their Men tie their packs Short, & carrying them on their shoulders thay are to Carry nothing in their hands in order to have free use of their Arms.
- Bouquet Orderly Book. August 9, 1764.
