by Richard B. LaCrosse Jr (Author). ISBN-13: 978-0788420528. For me, this is a very interesting book about Morgan's Riflemen, since my 4th great-grandfather served in this regiment, in his brother's rifle company (Captain Gabriel Long).

by Richard B. Many of the soldier's names are listed, so if you have an interest in this unique regiment, pehaps because of an ancestor who served under Daniel Morgan, it is a "must have" book. The only disappointment is of a personal nature, in that my ancestor's name is not listed on the muster roll in the book, even though there is documented proof of his service.

Frontier Rifleman is an important addition to any library concerned with American history. com User, May 9, 1998. This book takes a very in-depth look at the Revolutionary Rifleman.

The purpose of this book is to correct any preconceived ideas about the American Rifleman; to present to those who wish to re-enact or interpret the rifleman's role, a compact conglomeration of his clothing, arms, and equipment. Also, it can serve as a guide for any who wish to find out about the smallest detail of their equipment based on the few surviving specimens of the period 1760-1790. Often called frontiersmen, riflemen, backwoodsmen, scouts, woods-runners, over-mountain men, Big Knives, shirt-tail men - they all refer to the same sort of man. Two differences, however, are the terms 'long hunter' or 'woodsrunner' which denoted the man, who without a wife or family, lived for periods of time west of the Alleghanys, hunting and trapping and only returning to civilization to trade for a few necessities. Many still believe the myth that the War for Independence was fought by Americans from behind trees, cutting the Redcoats to pieces. Although this was the usual method of fighting on the frontiers, only a few battles of the Revolutionary War were fought in this manner. The Continental Army was trained in the same manner as European armies of the day and eventually learned to fight successfully that way. The war had to be fought in this manner, at least in the east, because the majority of the men were armed with muskets. The exception were the riflemen who did not fight in the lines, but hid behind cover and fired at will, which they could do because of the rifle's greater range and accuracy. Riflemen, who composed only five to ten percent of all the regular troops, were an important and essential part of the army. Though it can be said that the rifle was not the sole reason for the final victory, neither can it be denied that it was the arm that won the early frontier, it being used so successfully against the British and their Indian allies."

Excellent book that provides great background on the history, use, and perspectives of the rifle and rifleman on the frontier.

The sketches and descriptions of the clothing, tools, and equipment in the back are particularly useful to those interested in taking part in living history or even just giving your hunting gear an air of authenticity.
  • Nto
Great book.
Poor binding. Pages started falling out first time I opened it.
  • Hulbine
It has lots of great data for the colonial historian.
It has some very good drawings that depict the period.
  • Blackstalker
This is a great book, and I felt was well worth the price. This is perfect for anyone into re-enacting. There are great stories and gives a good picture about the way of life on the frontier. Has great illustrations and shows plenty of awesome outfit ideas. It also includes the many accessories carried by the frontiersman/mountain men, including rifles, powder horns, throwing knives, tomahawks, buckskin clothing, possible bags, leggings, moccasins, etc. There is even a section of the book that talks about rendezvous and the different activities/competitions that took place. Very interesting. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is into re-enacting or particularly interested in this era of history.
  • Hunaya
Not as instructive as I had hoped, but okay.
  • Blackbeard
Good book with nice chronology of significant rifleman engagements in the American Revolution. Sketched patterns for clothes and accouterments similar to Sketchbook 76 or the Longhunter's Sketchbook.
The text is good but I keep coming back to this book for the pattern ideas.
Book is very good lots of useful information I'm glad to have it in my collection. The book is fine had trouble with seller book was lower grade than I purchased
