Living conditions for Revolutionary Soldiers varied throughout the war. Many times soldiers found themselves incredibly undersupplied, marching through towns in scraps of clothing, having not received new shipments of uniforms on time. They often had to scrounge around and steal from homes neighboring their encampment in order to find enough food to satisfy their hunger, and often it hardly even did that.
  If you're looking for a really interesting account of the life of a soldier I would suggest trying to find J.P. Martin's account of his time as a soldier entitled "Private Yankee Doodle." For more about lack of supplies and hardships of soldiers try searching "Winter at Valley Forge 1777."
