Description - Colonial American Troops 1610-1774 by Rene Chartrand

This work concludes the three-part mini-series that describes the history of the local forces raised in the 13 original colonies of eastern North America. From the earliest English settlements the survival of the infant colonies depended upon these militias and they included conventional line regiments, provincial units, militias, and the legendary Rangers. They fought in many frontier campaigns against the Indians, French and Spanish, including: King Philip's War (1675-78); Queen Anne's War (1702-13); the Tuscarora War (1711-12); the Yamassee War (1715-28); King George's War (1740-48); the climactic French/Indian War (1754-63); and Pontiac's Rebellion which followed final victory over the French.
