A absolutely fabulous Rev War Hawk. It was made and carried by Pvt. Lodowick Snyder of 'The Kings Royal Regiment of New York ". I had some info. from a previous owner but didn't know who actually carried it until I acquired the book "The History and Master Roll of The King's Royal Regiment of New York " . The Hawk is very well made and is engraved KRR (King Royal Regiment) on the right flat of the blade. L.S (Lodwick Snyder) on the left eye flat. The right blade flat is engraved 1777. I originally thought it was 1779 but under closer examination with a lope see it's 1777. The right eye flat is engraved 2B (2nd Battalion). I took some pictures of the pages with his military history in the Kings Royal Regiment also a second picture that explains the intials under his Service Details. The QLR ( Queens Loyal Regiment ) 1777 served under Lt. Col. John Peters. The LV (Loyal Volunteers ) where he served under Lt. Col.Van Pfister until Pfister was killed during the Battle of Bennington and the command was passed onto Capt.Samual McKay who died shortly after and the command was passed onto Capt.Robert Leake. In 1778 , the majority of the survivors were organized into LIC ( Leake's Independent Company ) where Pvt. Snyder would serve until July,1780 when a 2 Battalion (2B) was formed. He would serve with them until they were disbanded June 1784. He moved to Canada but came back to New York in 1792. He is listed as a Artificer/Carpenter so it's pretty safe to assume that he made this wonderful Hawk and did the engraving himself. One of the most historic Rev.War. pieces I've ever had the pleasure of owning!
