[Uniforms] Rev. War Ranger

I am seeking the following about the uniform of a Revolutionay War Ranger on the Frontier from Pennsylvania: 1) Footwear-shoes or moccasins? 2) Trousers, or breeches and leggings?

According the Pennsylvania Archives, LTC Griger commanded Rangers on the Frontier as part of the Continental Line, and one of my ancestor served as a ranger in this unit.

Was the fabric currently called "cotton duck" used for unniforms in the Revolutionary War period?

Thank you.
