Hessen Cassel Infantry Regiment von Bose, by Mark A. Schwalm. Going to a Ball, or Going to War? The fancy dress uniforms - silver sash with red, gold lace, white tassels, brass, silver and gold accouterments! Perhaps it was considered a sport in those days. The Landgraf Friedrich probably enjoyed dressing his soldiers for hire. When they deserted, which many of them did, all their earthly possesions and inheritance went back to the Landgraf.
The Papers of John Philip Miller, "Hessian Private," by Frederick S. Weiser. An account of the beleaguered father grieving that the desertion of his son lost his inheritance.
Friedrich Henrich Scheer, by Donald Londahl-Smidt. The picture dress description of a Hessian major in the Regiment von Bose.
Johann Konrad Creutzberg, by Anne C. Gilbert. An article about a young man recruited at the age of 15 or 16 contains valuable data of the Charleston saga in the War of 1776.
Profiles - Linss, by Mark A. Schwalm. The profile of Friedrich WIlhelm Linss describes the life of a German deserter who collected bounty land in Canada and tried twice to draw an American pension.
