In 1776, George Washington served as commander in chief of the overpowered Continental Army fated for independence. He rode to battle wearing a dark blue uniform likely based on the one he wore as commander of the Fairfax (Virginia) Independent Company in 1775. At 6 foot 2, Washington towered over many of his contemporaries, and was an excellent horseman. With gold threaded epaulettes, brass buttons, and buff trim highlighting his collar, lapels, cuffs, waistcoat, and breeches, Washington was an imposing figure to his men and enemies alike.
