CLOTHING DOCUMENTATION

 
INTRODUCTION
 
With the exception of the written work of William Bartram (1739-1822), most contemporary accounts of colonial and Revolutionary Georgia tend to concentrate on persons living in the coastal areas of the state.  Advertisements for runaways and for the services of tailors found in the Georgia Gazette newspaper in Savannah indicate that the type of clothing worn by Georgians along the coast was similar to that worn over most of the Eastern seaboard, and of their brothers and sisters in England and Europe.  Reports of singularly odd persons, or of whites wearing “native” types of dress aside, in general it is safe to say that the cut of clothing for both the men and women of coastal Georgia tended to follow the English fashion.
 
As for the people further into the interior of the state, the areas of the state toward the northern frontier along the Savannah and Ogeechee Rivers are often thought of as a sparsely populated wilderness area.  Known simply the Back Country, or as time passed, the Ceded Lands, the Augusta District, St. Paul’s Parish, and finally Wilkes County, the territory along the South Carolina border was actually a rather busy crossroads of trade.   
 
The Ceded Lands/Wilkes County area had relatively easy access to goods and services via the Savannah River and a well established trade route south to Savannah through Augusta and Ebenezer; and Augusta was a main trading post for the Creek and Cherokee Indians.  Certainly there were folks in more isolated areas of the interior who were like the wild South Carolina backcountry folks described by Charles Woodmason, but there were many more who were more or less settled folks, used to the more structured “civilized” surroundings such as they left in the British Isles (or Germany in the case of the Ebenezer-based Salzburgers).  
 
In the written accounts of both the Salzburgers and the Quaker population of Wrightsborough, there is no suggestion that the white population of the Ceded Lands/Wilkes County territory was in any way divorced from the knowledge of current European clothing trends, and of course had ready access to most of the same cloth and clothing items as their more cosmopolitan brothers in Savannah and Charles Town, South Carolina.
 
The book Quaker Records in Georgia by Robert Scott Davis contains a very good set of records of one particular denizen of the back country, Captain William Manson.  Manson, the founder of the Friendsborough settlement in the Ceded Lands and an acquaintance of Thomas “Burntfoot” Brown (the founder of  the nearby Brownsborough settlement), placed advertisements in several English journals to solicit subscriptions for indentured servants to settle on his new plantation in the upper reaches of the Ceded Lands.  He and his partners William and John Chapman purchased 300 acres near Wrightsborough (west of Augusta) in December of 1774, and as master of the ship Georgia Packet, departed from England around the 11th of September, 1775.  The ship’s manifest lists each person’s name, age, occupation, and previous homeplace.  (See Appendix for a breakdown of this list).
 
More interesting than the passenger list for our purposes is the inclusion in Davis’ book of a listing of the ledger book of the Manson plantation, which was begun as soon as the settlement was established.  The entries in this ledger cover the year 1776, and list a huge variety of items bought and sold by the plantation. They include entries for foodstuff, tools, raw materials, clothing, cloth, tailoring, shoes, shoemaking—in short, everything that a more or less typical person living in Wilkes County during the early war years would be eating and wearing.  
 
One thing that is clear from Manson’s Ledger is that there was a fair amount of trade in the Back Country in the years of the Revolution, and not just for staple items.  There are many references to luxury goods received both for the Manson’s use and for trade to wealthy neighbors—items such as Delftware and knives and forks; and useful items such as hand tools, hardware, iron and steel, in addition to food and clothing.
 
Given the detailed nature of the descriptions (usually listing color, material, yardage and price) we believe that this ledger book is one of the best primary resources for properly documenting our impression—it is contemporary for the early time period of the Revolution, it contains information on purchases by persons in a range of economic classes, and it places the people and their clothing in the proper location geographically.   
 
CIVILIAN CLOTHING
 
In general, we believe that the ledger entries show a recognizable pattern of predominance for the following characteristics:
 
·               Plant fiber cloth versus woolens or leatherns—Although wool was certainly available, the relatively warmer climate of the area probably played a large part in the decision of the residents to use more linen and cotton cloth.  Leather most often is associated with shoemaking supplies, although there are four entries for leather breeches.
 
·               The preponderance of factory loomed versus homespun cloth—Of all the accounts in the ledger, very few are for raw wool or flax, and those that are listed are sufficient for no more than a few garments.  The vast majority of cloth appears to have been factory loomed.
 
·               The abundance of checked and printed cloth—Of 212 records, 44 mention either colored or patterned cloth.  These 44 records total approximately 385 total yards of cloth, and of this, 229 yards are some sort of printed or checked fabric.  Of solid colored cloth, blue is the predominate color, with nearly 60 yards.  The total yardage of all cloth in the records is about 944 yards.
 
·               The use of cotton fiber—Although most documentation associated with Revolutionary War reenacting tend to regard cotton as an expensive luxury item on par with silk, the ledger book shows that the prices paid for cotton cloth were within the range of other cloth materials purchased.  Instances of cotton being specifically named as raw cloth material amount to approximately 80 yards, or a bit less than 9% of the total yardage.  This does not take into accounts other fabrics which may have been made from cotton fiber, but no notation was made.  
 
·              Style of clothing—One thing the ledger does not show well is the particular cut, style, or type of clothing the raw cloth was made into, although the entries that do mention a particular garment point to a decidedly European flavor.  There is no evidence that the social norm for 18th century clothing was ignored in any way, with men’s clothing generally consisting of a hat, shirt, neck stock, waistcoat, breeches, outer coat, stockings and shoes.  Articles for which specific names are given include “short coat,” “French wide coat,” and a “surtout coat.”  There are several entries which record suits of clothes, or for coats and waistcoats.  Women’s clothing likewise seems to follow a European pattern, and several entries record such generic articles as gowns, and also include a citation for a “riding dress,” and for a “morning gown.”
 
MILITIA CLOTHING
 
The general findings listed above give us a high level of confidence in our current recommendations for representations of civilian dress.  Although further research may lead to new discoveries, one thing we have not been able to document in any way is the use of a particular uniform or distinguishing type of clothing for civilians serving in the Georgia militia, in Wilkes County or any other locale.  Until we can properly document such clothing, we will assume that the citizen soldier of Wilkes County served wearing his own clothing.  Depending on the individual’s social and economic standing, he might go afield in his only suit of clothes, or he could possibly have a suit particularly made for outdoor work.
 
Further, there is no evidence that any of his equipage was issued from government stores, and indeed, the Militia Act of 1778 specifically required each man to “constantly keep and bring with him, to such training, exercising or Muster, one good Gun, Bayonet, hanger, sword or hatchet, a Cartouch Box, twelve Cartridges a powder horn and half pound of Powder, with at least twenty four rounds of Lead, a Worm, pricker and four Flints each.”  No uniform of any type is mentioned.  Although it is well documented that individual commanders had the liberty to clothe any troops they might raise on their own, there is no evidence that Colonel John Dooly or any of the officers under his command so clothed any militia unit.  Indeed, from researching the proceedings of the Georgia Council of Safety and the Georgia Assembly and the Order Book of Colonel Samuel Elbert, it is quite clear that funds did not exist for raising and arming the Continental Battalions assigned to it by Congress, much less for funding the equipping of the militia.
 
ANALYSIS OF THE LEDGER BOOK
 
The first exhibit is the listing of the actual accountbook itself, re-arranged alphabetically by accountholder.  This listing is transcribed from the Davis book, and only includes accountholders who bought or sold fabric, shoes, clothing items, or notions.  As this report is for the purpose of documenting clothing, accounts for those who purchased any other items are excluded.   Headings include the name of the accountholder, the date of the ledger entry, whether the entry was a debit or credit, a heading to describe if the item was being purchased or being made, the article name (if given), the amount purchased (if given), the color of the article (if given), the type of material (if given), and the price.  Prices are listed in the Pounds…Shillings…Pence format.  (12 pence to the shilling, 20 shillings to the pound).
