This week's #WhatIsItWednesday object is a uniform coat! This British regimental coat was worn by Jacob Schieffelin, a Philadelphia-born Loyalist whose service in the British military began in the Detroit Volunteers. Schieffelin was captured as part of this unit after the American seizure of Fort Sackville (now in present day Vincennes, Indiana). From there, he was imprisoned in Williamsburg, Virginia, but managed to escape and eventually got to British-held New York City. Schieffelin married in New York, but in 1780 returned to Canada, where he was made a Lieutenant in the British Indian Department, a post which this coat may represent. Schieffelin would ultimately settle in the United States in 1794, living the rest of his life in New York City, where he founded Lawrence & Schieffelin, a wholesale drug distributor which survives today as Schieffelin & Somerset Co., an importer of fine wines and spirits.

This coat was one of many uniforms recently photographed and cataloged by the Collections department, and can be found on our online database following the link in bio ⬆️! You can look forward to seeing more photos of this object in the future! #TiconderogaCollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #museum #museumcollection #uniform #18thcentury #18thcenturyfashion #fashion #british #britain #army #history #militaryhistory #textile
