Of Sorts for Provincials, American Weapons of the French & Indian War


by Jim Mullins


This new book boldly displays the firearms, swords, and accouterments of the American provincial soldiers during the French and Indian War, 1754 – 1763. Unlike their British counterparts, the American provincials were issued a wide range of weapons. These were often old, used, and in poor condition, guns that were described by British officers as “of sorts for Provincial”. These weapons did not come only from British contractors and the Board of Ordnance, but from foreign countries such as Holland, Belgium, and France. Each style of long arm came with a unique bayonet, many of which are shown throughout the book.

Printed in landscape format, the 11 x 8-1/2” format allows for beautiful wide color photos. Close-up views of the unique maker’s marks, proof marks, top views, and detail views show features rarely revealed. Besides weapons, the accouterments used by the soldiers are also covered, including cartridge pouches and boxes, shot pouches, powder horns, powder measures, cleaning tools and more. “Of Sorts for Provincials” is a must-have book for any French and Indian War historian, re-enactor, or collector.

Softcover, 11 x 8-1/2” landscape format, 192 pages, full color photos. $33.95.
