Fort McHenry Project: US artillery batteries

US Artillery

I'm a bit behind on my Fort McHenry commissions- especially cataloguing all the stuff I've already done. Was able to be home with daylight this weekend so got some shots of these artillery batteries.

the uniform is a pretty straight up blue jacket, single row of buttons, with yellow trim. The belgic style shako with a slightly broader top than the British can also be seen.

I had a great time researching these uniforms, with the ever patient help of the Park Rangers at Fort McHenry.

Next up British Officers, Ship hulls, and US volunteer/ irregular troops!
