From the earliest English settlements the survival of the infant colonies
in North America depended upon local militias. Throughout the 17th and early
18th Centuries the burden of successive wars with the American Indians, and with
the regular troops and militias of Britain's colonial rivals France and Spain,
fell mainly upon locally raised volunteers. This first of a fascinating
three-part study includes a general introduction and chronology, and chapters on
Crown troops in North America; and begins a colony-by-colony review of militias
and provincial units. The text is illustrated with rare early images and with
eight specially commissioned full colour plates. Contents: Introduction *
Chronology * Royal Troops * Regular Regiments raised or organised in
America * Colonial Militias Provincial Troops * Virginia (Militia and
Provincials) * New Netherlands * New Sweden * Colour plates by David
