AMERICAN INFANTRY REGIMENTS AND INDEPENDENT BATTALIONS: TO 1783 - PART 6

The Revolutionary Army

Cavalry and artillery are widely involved in combat by their nature, and are usually conceived by commanders as integral components with infantry in the winning of land battles. Cavalry, artillery, and infantry were (and still are) deployed as mutually-supporting, manoeuver elements in land battles. Cavalry and artillery units often participated at less than full unit strength in detachments, or companies, to spread their support for the infantry, which is accepted as the principal manoeuver element. I have divided the state units into the categories assigned by those states (Continental, New England, Militia, etc).[1]
