Join The Revolution!
To all brave, healthy, able bodied, and well disposed young men of New
England and New York, who have any inclination to join the troops, now
raising under General Washington and his Commanders in the Northern
Department, For the Defense of the Liberties and Independence of the
United States against the hostile designs of foreign enemies
That Benjamin Whitcomb has been authorized by Congress to raise two
companies of Rangers to serve in the Continental Army assigned to the
Northern Department. The encouragement at this time to enlist as a Ranger
is truly generous. Embrace this challenge so that you may have the
opportunity of hearing and seeing in a more particular manner, great
adventures, namely unlimited travel over land and lake, the opportunity to
meet new and exciting people, and in the case of such Crown forces,
savages and Tories as you may encounter, occasionally shoot them.
Experience America's History Today
Today's Whitcomb's Rangers are living historians who strive to accurately
re-create the original Benjamin Whitcomb's Independent Corps of Rangers
who served as a unit in the Continental Army during the American
Revolution. We are members of The Continental Line, and the Burning of the
Valleys Military Association. We attend events throughout the year in New
England, New York, and elsewhere along the eastern United States where
important revolutionary war battles were fought. We are a growing
organization whose membership is open to all persons interested in
presenting the impression of a ranger or camp follower. We invite you to
contact us to learn more about membership in Whitcomb's Rangers, the
re-enacting hobby, or your American heritage.
