comment Where did the design of the US Colonel insignia come from?
Perhaps to go on a somewhat different note. Who would know? If this knowledge has been preserved somewhere, what would be the likely place to look?

It is an answer of sorts, but nothing conclusive. Was there perhaps a time when the rank of colonel was of greater importance? Maybe as the highest in the field leaders or something like that? To me it just seems weird that a rank other than the highest is associated with the eagle and the great seal.
