State Troops

I've included photos of the state troops at Cowpens from Virginia and South Carolina. Because they are small, I've lumped them together in one unit. This is part of the revised Lawrence Babits American order of battle for Cowpens which certainly indicates that American forces at this action were much larger than is historically handed down. These are all Old Glory figures-hunting shirt in firing line, and infantry in firing line. Uniformish stuff and standards are all completely conjectural

I've never fussed much about OG figures in the past, but it is troubling that the hunting shirt guys have cuffs.

The picture on the right shows the unit in close order, and that on the left in open order as they would appear in a game of Tarleton's Quarter.
