Although Historically the Guard was only tasked with protecting the Commander-in-Chief, his baggage and the Continental Army’s official papers,
we have formed a Combat Arms wing of the unit. The actual Guards never reached Regiment size, having a Battalion of men at their largest.
However, for the purposes of Whigs and Tories this unit is mustered to be a fully functioning combat Regiment containing ...

WORK IN PROGRESS
Throughout the American Revolutionary War, George Washington’s personal bodyguard was an elite corps of infantry and mounted men.
It was officially entitled The Commander-in-Chief’s Guard, but was more commonly known as The Life Guard.
At the start of the Revolutionary War, and the formation of the Continental Army, there was a stalemate between American and British forces around Boston, MA. After Washington stationed guns on Dorchester Heights and forced the British evacuation of Boston, the Continental Army was forced to become mobile to counter a British invasion along the coast. With movement, there became danger to Washington’s person. A surprise raid upon headquarters by colonial Tories and/or British raiders became a serious possibility so a personal guard to the Commander-in-Chief became necessary.   
The Guard was authorized on March 11, 1776 and organized the next day at Cambridge, Massachusetts prior to the Continental Army’s move from Boston to New York City. The guard’s purpose was to protect General George Washington.
However they were further assigned the responsibility of protecting the Continental Army’s official papers as well as the general’s baggage.

Appreciate the warm welcome, all.

1700s commander in chief ?  good luck
Actually it is the Combat Regiment of the Guards.
The actual C-i-C Guards unit will probably, be a Dev unit unless they wish us to also fulfill that role.

We are looking into a Combined Arms unit and, except for the Standards of Dress and Focused Training, just like any other Continental Army unit.
Depends on the feedback we are currently getting from Marks.
Things WILL change as we build.
