Synopsis: Collector's reference for military buttons, accoutrement plates, and gogets of the American Revolution. British, American, French. Very heavily illustrated with many portraits in full color.

Review: Don and Jim have combined the latest research with images of extant artifacts and artworks to convey the comprehensive history of military uniform buttons and accoutrement devices used by American, British, French, German and related auxiliary forces during America s War for Independence. Clear photography, solid historical analysis, and attractive presentation make this a must-have reference for every student of 18th-century military material culture. --Christopher D. Fox, Curator, Fort Ticonderoga

Insignia of Independence is a heavily illustrated magnum opus that reconstructs the appearance of the armies of the American Revolution in painstaking detail. The two leading authorities on 18th-century Anglo-American military material culture Don Troiani and James Kochan have produced a reference work that is bound to be hailed as an instant classic. This comprehensive catalog of military buttons; gorgets; and belt, cap, and cartridge box plates is augmented by expert commentary, photographs of the original artifacts, and numerous period portraits, engravings, and drawings that provide the clearest impression yet of how the men who fought for and against American independence actually looked. Military historians, militaria collectors, museum curators, and reenactors will find this work an indispensable addition to their libraries. --Gregory J. W. Urwin, Professor of History, Temple University

Following decades of intense research, this is the final word on buttons, plates, and insignia of the American Revolution. The two most qualified experts in the realm of Revolutionary War militaria have joined forces to present the collecting community with this fabulous opus. Decades in the making, it will not be surpassed, the finished product has proven greater than the sum of its parts. A delight to behold, its illustrations are exquisite, the design is engaging and it has been organized in a logical manner while avoiding the temptation to over-write. Don and Jim have proven themselves to be the preeminent authorities of our generation. --Mike O Donnell, author
