A Loyalist Officer's Coatee, breeches and waistcoat for Light Infantry Company. In 1779, Loyalist soldiers received scarlet uniforms, similar to those worn by British regulars. This one belonged to Lieutenant Jeremiah French of the King's Royal Regiment of New York. The gold buttons bear the regiment's initials.
