Who are we
The 2nd Continental Light Dragoons is a semi-hardcore cavalry regiment dedicated in making Whigs and Tories an enjoyable game for all. We are looking for persons who are interested in teamwork and aggressive style of gameplay. We chose to represent a continental unit due to the influx of British regiments.

History
The 2nd Continental Light Dragoons was commissioned under the command of Colonel Elisha Sheldon by the Continental Congress on December 12, 1776. The majority of its men were mustered in Wethersfield Connecticut in March of 1777 for service in the Continental Army. The regiment consisted of 4 troops from Connecticut, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from New Jersey and 2 companies of Light Infantry.

The regiment never saw combat as a whole but rather the troops were assigned when needed. Different elements of the 2nd Continental Light Dragoons saw combat at the Battles of Brandywine, Paoli, Whitemarsh, Saratoga, Germantown, Yorktown and many more. The Regiment performed many raids on British and Loyalist installations on Long Island using whale boats that resulted in the capture of many forts. Elements of this regiment served as Washington's personal bodyguard who were successful in foiling an assassination plot to kill George Washington. The Regiment patrol areas around New York and Connecticut, where they raided British supplies and fought off bands of Loyalist partisans which earned them the nickname "Watchdogs of the Highlands". Major Benjamin Tallmadge of the 2nd Continental Dragoons became a spymaster and ran the most successful spy ring in the war. His team was able to infiltrate the British military command in New York City and was credited with the exposure of Benedict Arnold as a traitor.
