The British Brigade, Inc. is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents
to honour the memories of those British and American soldiers and their
families who served their country while fighting and dying for their beliefs
and loyalties during the American War of Independence.

We endeavour to portray various aspects of the lives of these men and women
by bringing together hundreds of soldiers and campfollowers to educate the
public at weekend encampments. A field force of The King's Army in British
North America can be seen camped in the manner of the British Army of the
period. Here one can see tent lined streets filled with red, blue and green
coated men performing their daily duties as well as practicing drills and
manoeuvres.

At least twice a weekend the Army forms for battle against the Rebel forces
where one can see, amid the clouds of powder smoke and crash of musketry,
battalions of men manoeuvreing into action against their foes. Here infantry,
artillery and cavalry recreate the detailed evolutions of the 18th century's most
famous army.

 

 

The British Brigade , Inc. has provided Battle reenactments, tactical
demonstrations and military camps for local communities, county, state and
provincial governments and many historic sites. Those wishing to avail
themselves of the services of the British Brigade, Inc. should contact the
commanding officer.

  Brigadier James McGaughey
  General Officer Commanding

A note about the wallpaper background of this site:
The "GR" with the arrow above it is a property mark of King George
III. "GR" stands for "George Rex," meaning "King George" in latin.  
The arrow, known as a broad arrow, indicates that something is the
property of the king. This "GR" mark would be seen on many objects
used by the British and Loyalist soldier of the American Revolution.
