    Joel Bohy Joel Bohy has had an enduring passion for the material culture related to military history. A lifelong resident of Concord, Massachusetts, Joel began collecting at an early age and developed a passion for the arms, equipage, and uniforms of the common soldier from the American Revolutionary War through World War II.

    Through dedication and study, Joel developed the ability to reproduce highly authentic reproductions of clothing and equipment and has become highly sought after as a material culture consultant to museums, historical societies, and historical artists. He has provided replicas for museums, historical societies, and historical artists including the Concord Museum, the National Park Service, the Museum of the American Revolution, and private collectors.

    Joel has published articles on the American Revolutionary War, including "The Arms of Lexington and Concord" in The American Rifleman, with co-author and longtime collaborator Don Troiani. He is currently writing a book documenting extant objects related to the events of April 19, 1775, and the Battle of Bunker Hill.
