Revolutionary Cavalry and Infantry at the Plantation

The Fourth Legionary Corp with both their cavalry and light infantry unit will take over the Plantation on November 9th and 10th. The legion will demonstrate all facets of combined cavalry and infantry warfare during the Revolutionary Period. See our website for skirmish times.  We will also have our colonial house open. There will be long rifle demonstrations, woodworking, hearth cooking and textile demonstrations. Come and see our new milking cow as well as the rest of our rare breed farm animals.

 

THE 4TH LEGIONARY CORPS is a historically recreated cavalry and light infantry unit formed to relive the activities of an American army regiment that was originally raised in Pennsylvania during the American War of Independence. It is composed entirely of individuals who are accurately uniformed, equipped, and trained in the 18th-century style drill and discipline. The unit was formed in 1994 by an experienced group of veteran Bicentennial re-enactors who are devoted to authenticity. The goal of the regiment is to put into the field both mounted and dismounted troops who will demonstrate all facets ofcombined cavalry and light infantry warfare during the period as well as excellent and correct living history. By 1781 all cavalry units of the continental army were converted to legions of comibined dragoons (cavalry) and light infantry. The regiment was commanded by Colonel Stephen Moylan, and two of his six captains were John Heard and Erasmus Gill. The men of the 4th portray its formation as a legion under these two troop captians as of 1781.
