Additional Description: left: The main American force at Eutaw Springs consisted of regular troops from Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Most men in these units wore hunting frocks, rough-looking but pratical garments adapted from homespun shirts worn by frontier riflemen.
center: The American militia was made up of ordinary farmers and laborers who wore their own clothes into battle and sometimes carried their own weapons.
The British 64th regiment suffered more casualties in the battle of Eutaw Springs than in any other action it fought during the Revolution
