RR-21 Rogers’ Rangers, Rangers Walking
There are no surviving Rogers Ranger uniforms from this period. Descriptions do exist, and most coats seem to have been based on the basic pattern of 1750?s era British jackets, with certain changes. The main change being the removal of the regimental lacing, which proved unsuitable for wilderness warfare as it would easily get caught up in the undergrowth. Apart from the standard issue coat, an early attempt to provide an uniform for the rangers was the easily constructed ?square? or ?box frock?. This was a simple linen tunic which was designed to pull over the head, and would reach down to the knees.
