That is the correct answer.

     The Patriots, in general, wore white breeches and waistcoats (vests) and blue coats. The facings, which included the collars and their long lapels and the cuffs were made of different color cloth to differentiate the toops of certain regions. Although each regimental unit did not have its own unique colors, the New England colonials wore blue coats faced in white. New York and New Jersey troops wore blue coats faced in buff. The mid-Atlantic colonies of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia word blue coats faced in red. And the troops from Carolinas and Georgia wore blue coats faced in a darker blue.
