Re: [Weapons] War of 1812 Gun carriage colour

Hi René,

During your curatorial times, did you ever see a paint analysis from any of the surviving artifacts?

From what you describe, it sounds like the white, black and a tiny, tiny bit of prussian blue I'd expect in the ordinance mix.

Cheers,
Geoff Heinricks
