CLOTHING GUIDELINES AND SUGGESTIONS

On this page you'll find links to the various regiments that served at the Battle of Short Hills. Each link includes documentation on that regiment as well as a guide for its recreation.

As living historians, we all strive for an accurate as possible representation of our forefathers. We reenact to educate and memorialize those who spilt blood in the name of freedom and liberty. That being said, we also realize that in modern times this isn't always the easiest task. We hope these resources inspire and help shape your impressions for this event and those to come. If you are unable to meet these guidelines you are still ALWAYS welcome to attend the event, we merely ask you do your best to keep 1776/1777 in mind. We want to ensure that all participants have the best possible experience at the battle of Short Hills 2017!

Guidelines and research prepared by Nicholas Spadone and John U Rees.
