Clarence and I are delighted to announce that the online shop is now selling flags for the American War of Independence starting with 15 British units who fought in the Southern Theatre. Those will appear in the shop today. They will be followed by a variety of other flags from the war all done in Clarence's inimitable style.

I have a lot of American flags already, but I am trying to figure out how to organize them. There are so many flags that are unknown that many are pure conjecture based on conventions of the time. For the most part units provided their own flags (or not... many units probably didn't have flags, but as a wargamer I always include them).
I will also offer 'Betsy Ross' stars and stripes and other variations despite the fact that these were rarely (never?) actually carried by units in the field. Popular folklore and Hollywood place them at certain battles and they are a recognizable symbol of the period.
