[Weapons] American Revolution

I am a black powder shooter and want to buy or build a new muzzleloader. I had an ancestor in the 4th Plymouth Co. militia and would like to have a rifle similar to what would have been used by the citizen soldiers of that area at that time. I assume it would be a flintlock, but of what caliber -- would it have been a smoothbore?? Appreciate any information anyone can provide. Thank you.
