Colonial American Troops 1610-1774 : Pt. 2 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Patrice Courcelle

Part of the Men-at-Arms series

Description

This book describes the dramatic and colourful history of the provincial units which were raised in the 13 original American colonies.

They were raised to protect themselves from the Indians as well as to fight alongside British regular troops during the climatic French/Indian War of 1754-1763 and against Pontiac's Rebellion which followed final victory over the French.

Units raised include the Virginia Regiment (in which George Washington served), and the 'Ranger Companies' of forest guerrillas such as that led by the legendary Robert Rogers.

These units were the seeds from which grew the future American army of the Revolutionary War.
