Excerpt from One Hundred Years Ago: Or, Our Boys of 1776, a Patriotic Drama in Two Acts

Elmer. Neat suit of continental fashion; brown coat; buff vest; white necktie; brown breeches; blue stockings; shoes with buckles; cocked hat.

Pretzel. Brown trunks, or full trousers fastened at the knee; blue stockings; short brown coat; small Dutch cap, or knit woollen cap with tassel at end.

Ginger. Gray breeches; red stockings; blue striped shirt; red waistcoat, open; grizzled wig; heavy shoes.

Blucher and Burke. Brown coats; red waistcoats; dark breeches; brown or gray stockings; shoes without buckles. Mrs. Sterling. Gray dress; white kerchief, neatly pinned across bosom; Quaker cap.

Ruth. Brown or gray dress, opening in front, showing white skirt, rather short; long sleeves; high neck; white hose, and black shoes; hair light, in Grecian knot.

Prudence. Short patch petticoat, with looped overskirt and waist of red material; sleeves rolled up in first act, and apron on; hair done up high with large comb; sleeves turned down for second act.

The Quaker costumes may be hard to obtain, but can easily be manufactured. For hats, cover wide-rimmed straw bats with brown or gray cambric, "wrong-side" out. For coats, "stand up" the collars of any old-fashioned dark coats, to give a prim and stiff appearance. The balance can easily be obtained. Guns used in this piece should have the appearance of flint-locks.
