From the Introduction, The Society's collection of '18th and early 19th-century military and domestic relics, with their associated records of discovery, cast considerable light on the uniforms, equipment, and camp life of the American Revolution and War of 1812. The relics were secured by archaeological excavation during a period fo many years on military sites in the State of New York and along the Canadian frontier. Articles written by the authors, relating to their excavations and to the life and equipment of soldiers appeared in various issues of the Society's Quarterly Bulletin and in its Annual Report. These articles are reprinted in this handy volume which is likely to be of interest to collectors, and to all students of military life and accoutrements of the American Revolution and the War of 1812.
