~ SUTLERS ~
or victualer is a civilian merchant who sells provisions to an army in the field, in camp or in quarters. These merchants often followed the armies of the American Revolution and the American Civil War to try to sell their merchandise to the soldiers. Generally, the sutlers built their stores within the limits of an army post or just off the defense line, and first needed to receive a license from the Commander prior to construction. They were, by extension, also subject to his regulations.
There will be many sutlers set up near the American encampment. These merchants sell all sorts of things the soldiers and civilians of the armies need, and also many things that members of the public may find of interest. Shopping is encouraged!
The number of sutlers will be limited by invitation only, due to available space and to ensure a wider variety of merchandise to be made available. However, additional inquiries may be sent to
(address below) for consideration should space become available.
Once established we will continue to update the complete listing of sutlers who have committed to this event.
Inquiries may be made to:
1203 Reynolds Rd, Chepachet RI 02814
