American rebel infantry officer, circa 1775­-1776 - "During its earlier years, the American army wore uniforms in a wide variety of colours. Brown coats were quite common....This officer's weapon is a half-pike or 'spontoon', characteristic of 18th century British officers, which emphasizes how the rebels used the British army as a model in many ways for both uniforms and weapons." by christian
