1776-1783 2nd Continental Light Dragoons Standards

ZIP File

Ride with the 2nd Continental Light Dragoons under these proud standards!  All are based on surviving artifacts. The striped one was rediscovered in 2006 and auctioned to an unknown bidder , while the other two are in museums.  The striped standard (which was captured by Colonel Banastre Tarleton at the Battle of Poundridge, New Jersey) was the regimental standard, and the other two were likely troop standards.  

There is some uncertainty what color the fringe on the regimental standard.  All photographs show it as green, but it may have discolored over the centuries.  Since there is some uncertainty, three different illustrations are provided here: one with green fringe, one with gold fringe, and one with silver fringe.

All flags have obverse, reverse, and complete flag images.  They come as 15 high-quality PNG images, contained in a zip folder.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
