Title: Pulaski's Legion [PL]
Post by: JerzyBurza on July 06, 2018, 11:19:05 pm


Pulaski's Legion was raised on March 28, 1778 at Baltimore, Maryland under the command of Kazimierz Pułaski
for service with the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.
The Legion consisted of one troop of lancers, two troops of dragoons and 200 light infantry soldiers.
It was one of the few cavalry regiments in the American Continental Army.
The Legion would see action at the Little Egg Harbor massacre, Siege of Savannah, and the Siege of Charleston.
The legion was disbanded in November 1780 and the men were merged into Armand's Legion.
The legion's 1st Cavalry was commanded by Maj. Pierre-Francois Vernier during the Siege of Charleston's first bloody skirmishes.

(     Kazimierz Michał Władysław Wiktor Pułaski  was a Polish noblemanb, soldier and military commander
who has been called, together with his Hungarian friend Michael Kovats de Fabriczy, "the father of the
American cavalry".Born in Warsaw and following in his father's footsteps, he became interested in politics
at an early age and soon became involved in the military and the revolutionary affairs in Poland
(the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth). Pulaski was one of the leading military commanders for
the Bar Confederation and fought against Russian domination of the Commonwealth. When this uprising failed,
he was driven into exile. Following a recommendation by Benjamin Franklin, Pulaski immigrated to North
America to help in the cause of the American Revolutionary War. He distinguished himself throughout the
revolution, most notably when he saved the life of George Washington. Pulaski became a general in the
Continental Army, created the Pulaski Cavalry Legion and reformed the American cavalry as a whole. At the
Battle of Savannah, while leading a daring charge against British forces, he was gravely wounded, and died
shortly thereafter. Pulaski is remembered as a hero who fought for independence and freedom in both Poland
and the United States. Numerous places and events are named in his honor, and he is commemorated by
many works of art. Pulaski is one of only eight people to be awarded honorary United States citizenship.
He never married and had no descendants. Despite his fame, there have been uncertainties and controversies
surrounding both his place and date of birth and burial.
