SILVER BUCKLES WORN BY THOMAS POSEY

Originally, I thought the buckles at the Smithsonian might have been the buckles Posey stole from Harmonus Dumond as he lay dying in the VanWaggenen Inn at Pakatakan in August, 1778, just a year before the capture of Stony Point and the dance of Thomas Posey. But those buckles prpbably were not made until years after the Pakatakan killing, and even after the battle at Stony Point.
