Hesse-Kassel Cockades, American Revolution
« on: July 10, 2016, 08:53:57 PM »
Does anybody know what color the cockades were for Hessian officers and musketeers in the American Revolution?

The best I can turn up is the Perry brothers' article on the Hessians and Brunswick troops for the Saratoga Campaign, which indicates they all wore black cockades. Is that correct?

Seems to be right....

There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today...turn two points to port.
