  • Description

When the British took control of the City of Philadelphia in September of 1777, they faced
a population that was friendly and hostile at the same time. Beginning with their early
occupation, General William Howe found it necessary to issue a series of proclamations
about everything from collecting blankets and rugs to prohibiting wood cutting. This
set contains 7 reproductions of those proclamations. Includes:

  • Importation of Liquor
  • Chimney Sweep Advertisement
  • Prohibiting Wood Cutting
  • Naval Stores Inventory
  • Curfew Regulations
  • Request for Blankets
  • Request for Wagons

I have a question I need labels for a 1859 Sharps it is a 54 caliber . I notice your labels say 52/100 caliber am I missing somthing

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.

I don’t sell a reproduction of the package, but someone made one years ago and gave it to me. I don’t know if it is an accurate reproduction or made up. If I can find it in my files I’ll send you information.
