    I was fortunate to find two full bolts of light, white canvas at very low price. As a member of the Sons of the American Revolution I want to build one or more tents of the Revolutionary style. I have one very old and worn tent to use as a pattern however I would like to make one from a pattern. This tent is a wedge with closed back and flaps on the front and no floor. Can you supply a pattern?

    Thank you

    The ancient Greeks and Romans provided tents for their soldiers; they were built using wooden support frames and large cloth coverings.

    Excellent read about the history of tents! I recently got myself a Cave by Heimplanet and it is the coolest and sturdiest inflatable tent I’ve ever tried! It’s absolutely mind blowing what researchers, designers and manufacturers can do these days!
