British officer, Captain John Knox describes British Army made leggings, or leggers after the 1758 campaign season. Copying Native American fashion, these practical garments helped protect British and Colonial soldiers in the woods during the French & Indian War. Knox's description provides not only details about their construction he also gives his perspective on their appearance and function.
