As far as I know, the redcoats were English; the French army wore blue coats with red pants and red hat. The only French regiment wearing red coats were the Swiss Guards, which had been dissolved in 1830.

(That’s if they’ve improved since I used one, it was not portable when I had one.) Then he could do some really cool stuff!

I would like to see this event. We have civil war re-enactments that explore the lifestyle of the period (1860’s), much more than just the battles.

Be careful with that black-powder, sparks and dry grass peeps – accidents can and do happen! Glad all the blood was fake.
