A rifleman in hunting shirt with Kentucky long rifle
This is a generic uniform and could depict any unit but I see this type of soldier in the battle of King’s Mountain. The rifle was slow to load and could not have a bayonet, but in the hands of an expert was deadly accurate at long range in the American Revolution.
He is well equipped for fighting in the woodlands with deerskin leggings a reinforced shirt slouch hat and cartridge pouch. The drab colors were early camouflage.
