On April 19, 1775, both British Regulars and the Provincial militia were both carrying knapsacks. This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to build either a British painted canvas knapsack based on the original British militia knapsack found 20 years ago at the Isaac Royal House in Medford, or an American single pocket, double strap linen knapsack based on the original David Uhl knapsack in the collection of Washington's Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh, NY, and another similar one in a private collection, both of which were used by militiamen. Knapsack kits will include pre-cut materials, buckles, thread and instructions needed to construct the knapsack of your choice. Class limited to 12 participants. Cost of kits includes $50 workshop fee.

Cost of "Isaac Royal House" pattern British Knapsack Kit: $150

Cost of "David Uhl" pattern American Knapsack Kit: $ 90
