Folding camp stool with wooden frame and leather seat.
George Washington’s camp stool used during the Revolutionalry War.
When Washington encamped with his army, the troops carried tents, a collapsible bed, folding tables, camp stools, and bags and trunks filled with equipment. Two sets of camp chests were purchased by Washington on 3 May 1776. Another set was captured from a British ship and sent to Washington in October 1778. By 1782, Washington’s camp equipment was so extensive that he requested from Quartermaster Timothy Pickering two horses just to carry the load.
