[Accoutrements] Knapsacks marked US over RR

Sir ,
I read an article in the Journal I believe vol 50 no 3 1998 ,
written by Stephen Osman and Frederick Gaede .
Concerning knapsacks in the war of 1812 their is mention of knapsacks marked US over RR , I am wondering if their is information when the US Army used these knapsacks during the war of 1812 . The usage being with the Regiment of Riflemen .
Thank you
Lloyd R Gower
