13 x 21" Oil on Canvas Framed 20 x 28" Musicians were noncombatants and did not carry weapons. But at times the buglers and drummers were involved in the action. Drum and bugle calls were used on the battlefields to issue commands, though the sound of battle tended to make such communication difficult. When the fighting began, drummers generally moved to the rear and stayed away from the shooting. However, Civil War battlefields were extremely dangerous places, and drummers were known to be killed or wounded.

"7th Regiment of Foot, Royal Fusiliers"

Oil on board 11x14" framed 20.5 x 17.5". A British Soldier as he may have appeared during the battle of Cowpens during the American Revolutionary War in South Carolina on Jan 17th, 1781. In was one of the most pivotal battles of the war and severest battlefield loss for the Fusiliers. Four companies had been captured but six remained. Most of what remained were garrisoned at Charleston. Cornwallis had retained 71 fusiliers prior to the Cowpens campaign at Winnsboro, and both the Grenadier and Light Infantry companies were in New York City. The regiment suffered considerable losses but was far from being destroyed and would continue to conduct operations until the end of the war two years later.

"The Camp Follower"

13 x 21" Oil on Canvas Framed 20 x 28" Camp followers in the Continental Army served a critical role in the day-to-day functions of the American revolutionary cause. By the winter of 1777, around two thousand women marched with American troops and worked as seamstresses, nurses, and cooks. In many cases, women who followed the army were widows, runaway servants, or those who faced poverty because of the war. The wives of high-ranking officers, including Martha Washington, also accompanied their husbands at winter encampments. Though they supported the operations of the military, camp followers were often disparaged for taking a share of the already meager resources of the Continental Army. Camp followers contributed to the daily responsibilities of maintaining the army by performing traditionally domestic tasks. One such role was serving as washerwomen for enlisted men and officers, which was essential for hygiene and the prevention of communicable diseases among the encampments. While washing clothing was sometimes imposed on camp followers by company commanders to justify their rations, some women engaged in entrepreneurial laundry work and, if not regulated by the unit they accompanied, would charge as much as the market would bear for their services.
