The Continental Marine Corps were Infantrymen who served on Naval vessels and under the command of the ship's captain. Their multipurpose mission was to provide shipboard security, act as sharpshooters in the ship's rigging during ship-to-ship engagements, and conduct amphibious landings and raids to capture vessels, weapons, munitions, and other naval stores. In 1776, their uniform was established by the Continental Congress; green with white facings and silver buttons and officer epaulets in line with Infantry colors. In 1779, the facings were changed to red. A particularly notable part of the uniform was a thick leather stock worn around the neck. It was to protect the Marines from cutlass wounds to the neck and to keep them standing tall. This was the origin of the endearing nickname for Marines, "Leathernecks".
All colonial military jackets come with detachable buttons that attach with hitch pin clips; this helps prolong the life of the coat during washes and allows for effortless button customization.
