SCAN-0910BS Twelve Infantry, 1st Canadian Regiment
Special Booster Set!
This regiment of the Continental Line, under the command of Colonel Moses Hazen, was recruited at large during 1776, and was known as “Congress’s Own,” because it was not attached to the quota of any one of the states. It was composed of men from all the states and from Canada, but most were from Pennsylvania and Canada. Throughout the war, it was known as a splendid command. The uniform of the battalion companies until 1779, was brown faced with white. After that date the facings were changed to red.
Three of the Continental Army units which took part in the assault on the Breymann Redoubt, were the 2nd Massachussetts, The 2nd New York, and The 1st Canadian Regiment.
