Brush and Picker — A musket accessory of questionable serviceability consisted of a brush and picker attached together by a chain and usually worn hanging from the shoulder strap but sometimes carried in the knapsack. In a regular army they were a part of the regulation equipment. The picker was for the touch-hole. The brush was for cleaning the flint, frizzen, and pan.
