Hi,

I am quite interested in the 18th century and things around it. I am learning about it and trying to understand, who it worked, how people were thinking at that time.

At some times I am going to workshops to learn things like card games of that time. It's fascinating to see, what/how those things worked and compare it with todays ideas.

comment How were small swords worn in the 18th century?
@Vector First: I thihk, there were rules on this. At those times, there were many rules for etiquette like things (like how to lift your tricorne). There were also rules on when not to wear the small sword, etc. So I doubt that there were no rules on how to wear it. Second: Assuming you're right and there were a lot of variants (I can imagine that things changed), then a good answer could reference some more common forms and give some evidence on not so common ones or the like. I even asked for variants. And I highly doubt, that there are no sources on this. Just I am unable to find them.

Seems more relevant to the 19th than to the 18th century, so only adding that tag.

I guess, this question is specific to the us? If so, you might add a united-states tag. I start to wonder, how things were in other countries in that time.
