description The Garden of the Gulf Museum at Montague has in its collection what is surely one of the earliest and most interesting militia artifacts in Prince Edward Island. It is said to have belonged to Captain John Mac- Donald,* though in a colony where "John" and "MacDonald" were probably the two most common names, exactly which John MacDonald poses a bit of a problem [see boxed essay]. The coat likely dates from the 1790s, a period of intense militia activity.
