I read the article about knapsacks by Stephen Osman and Frederick Gaede . My question is
;Did the U.S. Regiment of Riflemen use a knapsack thet was marked U.S. over R.R. on a white background with a black circle around these letters , on their knapsacks . From April 1808 to December of 1814 or any part of that time .
I am involved in a company that is uniforming up for the 200 th anniversary of the war of 1812 and this is a point of uniformity we are having trouble with . In reading the article I believe their was such a knapsack however others in our group say their is no evidence to support this knapsack . An answer to this would be most helpfull .
