Years ago I got a copy of the April 1976 National Geographic. In it was a color period fold out copy of the battle of Camden. [ed. note: See Barron map] On the map was the battle line of the units before the battle began. Each unit was depicted with a rectangle showing coat color and facing color. All units depicted were as we now know them, but with one exception. The British Legion cavalry are in the well-known green faced black. BUT THE LEGION INFANTRY ARE IN RED FACED BLACK! Since this is a period map, in color, showing all unit uniforms, would this not indicate the correct color for the legion infantry? [ed. note: While the map is of the period, I recall nothing to date that indicated that Barron was present at the battle.]
