Description

With the first settlers in the New World came styles of clothing from the Old World that eventually mixed with new styles, as trade routes and shipping made cloth and other materials hard to come by and expensive. As the colonists settled along the eastern seaboard, clothing remained an important part of social identity and coping with new surroundings. In ""Colonial America"", readers will learn how men and women dressed, from the earliest settlers to those who fought in the Revolutionary War, from the rich landowners to the poorest servants. Stills from popular movies and plays, along with informative sidebars, assist in re-creating colonial dress for students' own projects.The chapters include: The First Settlers, Costume in the Colonies, Growth, Made in America, Military Uniforms, and Textiles.
