Polish Hussar Supply Plus









The Zaporozhian Cossacks of the Wild Plains lived along
the lower Dnieper River in the 16th and 17th century.
A military brotherhood formed from run away serfs and
adventures from Ruthenia, Russia, Poland and the Tartaria
as well as other neighboring lands.
Their unique arms, armor and manner of dress were
influenced by their neighboring allies and foes.
The Steppes of the 'Wild Plains' was under the rule of the
Polish kings and the Zaporozhians were hired to protect the
south-eastern borderlands of the Commonwealth from ever
raiding Tartar horsemen.   
At this time most of the Cossack were famous for their skill
as infantrymen and as Black Sea pirates.   Cossacks,
registered with the Polish crown were partially paid in
cloth for uniforms, blue being the favorite color.  Their
dress was similar to that of Polish and Hungarian infantry.  
Later, as the Zaporozhians rebelled against the Polish
nobility and tens of thousands of Ruthenian peasants
joined their ranks of they and wore what ever they had or
could take along the way.  As they conquered towns and
cities in the Ukraine they picked up a wide variety of Polish
clothing and fine horses.
At this time the Moscovite state also supplied thE Cossacks
with arms as they allied against the Polish-Lithuanian
Commonwealth.
