Kingsbury's Independent Artillery / Locke's Militia is a unit based in Norwood, NC. While first & foremost, we represent Col. Locke's Militia Company; Kingsbury's Artillery is our alternate persona. When serving as militia, we do both infantry & artillery. Whether serving as militia or Continental artillery we are capable, when personnel are available, of fielding 2 three pounders, a light howitzer and a CoeHorn mortar. Militia "uniforms" are civilian attire, Kingsbury's uniforms are basically off-white small clothes & fringed hunting frocks, as they were issued. A few have chosen to purchase Continental Army artillery uniform coats (blue coats with red facings and yellow trim) for use when we portray generic Continental Artillery.
