Regiments / Colonial Brigade - NA - EST 2015
« on: May 24, 2017, 12:49:01 am »















|Information|

The Colonial Brigade, formed on the eve of the Revolutionary War, will be a highly competitive and organized detachment of brave British men. We aim to organize various regiments into a well-fit brigade, allowing our players to coordinate in battle and in trainings. The detachment will consist of skirmishers, line infantry, cavalry, and artillery. We will represent historical accuracy and discipline to the best of our ability, while creating a fun atmosphere for our player base. Through practice and drill, the Colonial Brigade aims to be dominant on the field of battle, representing the might and strength of British redcoats. If you are looking to join something greater than a regiment who runs around aimlessly on the field of battle, the Colonial Brigade will bring the structure, coordination, and discipline you desire. Join one of our regiments today~ God Save the King!

Overnight, the Massachusetts militia, nominally led by William Heath and Artemas Ward, converged on Boston, laying siege to the city. In the days immediately following, militia units from New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut arrived. The militia recovered over 180 pieces of artillery in raids on Ticonderoga and Crown Point for use in the siege. On May 25, 4,500 British reinforcements arrived in the city with three more senior officers; Major General William Howe, and Brigadiers John Burgoyne and Henry Clinton.

In an attempt to pacify the rebellion, Gage issued a proclamation on June 12 to pardon all those who would lay down their arms. However, it only inflamed the Patriots, and more flocked to their cause.
On June 17, British forces seized the Charlestown peninsula from the Americans after a costly assault. With over 1,000 casualties and the siege still unbroken, Gage was replaced by Howe as Commander-in-Chief. Many senior British officers wrote of their dismay at the attack, which had gained them little.Gage himself wrote to the Secretary of War in London:

"These people show a spirit and conduct against us they never showed against the French....They are now spirited up by a rage and enthusiasm as great as ever people were possessed of and you must proceed in earnest or give the business up. A small body acting in one spot will not avail, you must have large armies making diversions on different sides, to divide their force. The loss we have sustained is greater than we can bear. Small armies cannot afford such losses, especially when the advantage gained tends to do little more than the gaining of a post".

The Queen's Rangers was Founded
 December 9, 2016 by Marks.
I Duke LongTree am going to bring the Queen's Rangers
in to the new Whigs and Tories.
The Rangers is made of a mixture of EU/NA.
It's a good mixture of older players that have a long history
with linebattle gaming.
If you are looking for a regiment with great history and
great stability we welcome you.

Philadelphia Campaign (1777-1778)
Siege of Charleston (1780)


               

When the American Revolutionary War broke out in 1775, about fifty Loyalist regiments were raised, including the Butler's Rangers, the King's Royal Regiment, and the Maryland and Pennsylvania Loyalists. Robert Rogers again raised a unit, this time in New York (mostly from Loyalists living in Westchester and Long Island), from western Connecticut, and with men from the Queen's Loyal Virginia Regiment. The new unit was named in honour of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III. It first assembled on Staten Island in August 1776 and grew to 937 officers and men, organized into eleven companies of about thirty men each, and an additional five troops of cavalry. The unit immediately set about building fortresses and redoubts, including the one that stood at Lookout Place. Rogers did not prove successful in this command and he left the unit on January 29, 1777. The regiment had suffered serious losses in a surprise attack on their outpost position at Mamaroneck, New York, on October 22, 1776. Eleven months later, on September 11, 1777, they distinguished themselves at the Battle of Brandywine, suffering many casualties while attacking entrenched American positions. They were then commanded by Major James Wemyss. On October 15, 1777, John Graves Simcoe was given command, when the unit became known informally as "Simcoe's Rangers"-

Post-war years
After 1791, when Simcoe was named lieutenant governor of the newly created Upper Canada, the Queen's Rangers was revived to form the core of the defence forces. The leaders were mostly veterans of the American War of Independence. Although there was little military action during this period, the Rangers were instrumental in building Upper Canada through Simcoe's road building campaign. In 1795–6 they blazed the trail for Yonge Street, and then turned to Dundas Street and Kingston Road. They also built the original Fort York, where they were stationed. The Queen's Rangers were again disbanded in 1802 with most of the men joining the York Militia—from which many would take an active role in the War of 1812.

During the Rebellions of 1837, Samuel Peters Jarvis raised a new Queen's Rangers out of the York Militia to fight the rebels, which again disbanded soon after being raised.

Legacy
A Canadian Army Reserve Regiment called The Queen's York Rangers (1st American Regiment) (RCAC) traces its roots to the original Roger's Rangers. In 2012 the Rangers were assigned the perpetuation of three War of 1812 units and received battle honours accordingly.

An Ontario historical plaque was erected in Yorktown, Virginia, by the province to commemorate the Queen's Rangers' role in Ontario's heritage.
