Baggage is any number of bags, cases and containers which hold a traveller's articles during transit. Luggage is more or less the same concept as "baggage", but is normally used in relation to the personal baggage of a specific person or persons. The modern traveller can be expected to have packages containing clothing, toiletries, small possessions, trip necessities, and on the return-trip, souvenirs. For some, luggage and the style thereof is representative of the owner's wealth. Baggage, or baggage train, can also refer to the train of people and goods, both military and of a personal nature, which commonly followed pre-modern armies on campaign.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
bag′āj, n. the tents, provisions, and other necessaries of an army: (U.S.) traveller's luggage; a worthless woman: a saucy woman. [O. Fr. bagage—baguer, to bind up, from which we may infer all the meanings, without reference to Fr. bagasse, It. bagáscia, a strumpet.]
Dictionary of Nautical Terms
The necessaries, utensils, and apparel of troops.
Military Dictionary and Gazetteer
The clothes, tents, utensils of divers sorts, and provisions, etc., belonging to an army, or part of an army.
Etymology and Origins
A term often applied to a woman, because the wives of soldiers taken on foreign service go with the stores and baggage generally. In the United States this word is an equivalent for the English “Luggage.”
