HIS MAJESTY'S TENTH FOOT

XHis Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot in America is a historically re-created infantry unit formed to portray the service of the British Army during the American War for Independence.

Composed of two types of soldier, Grenadiers and Light Infantry, a company of Music, and Corps of Civilian Volunteers, the members of the Tenth are accurately uniformed, equipped, and trained in 18th century military drill and life so that we appear in public as members of the British Army would have in 1775.

You are invited to browse through this web site and learn more about the Tenth Foot. If you are motivated and have the time and the dedication, maybe you too can become part of America's premier re-created British Regiment.

The Tenth Regiment played an important role in the early events of the American Revolution. On April  19th, 1775, the Light Infantry and Grenadier companies were part of the expenditionary force sent by General Gage to capture the arms being stockpiled by the militia in Concord, MA. On that day, the Light Infantry Company was present at both Lexington Green and Concord's North Bridge when the First Shot and the Shot Heard 'Round the World were fired.  Both companies were engaged in the skrimish at Bloody Angle, near Lincoln, MA, and the desparate retreat back to Boston along what has become known as Battle Road.

At the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775, the Grenadier Company took part in those three fateful charges up Breed's Hill towards Prescott's fortified line, while the Light Infantry Company particiated in the ill-fated attack along the beach against Stark's men guarding the rebel's left flank. The Tenth also fought in the Battle of Long Island, the Invasion of Manhatten Island, the Battle of Germantown, the Battle at Monmouth Courthouse, and the defense of Newport and Quaker Hill, eventually being drafted* back to England in September, 1778.

*HISTORICAL NOTE:When a regiment was "drafted" during the Revolutionary War, the Officers, NCOs, and Musicians were sent back to Britain to recruit and rebuild the regiment. The private soldiers stayed in America and were distributed as replacements to the regiments that remained to continue in the war.

COME SEE the TENTH in ACTION!
