In all, 72 men answered the call to the Lexington Alarm & marched on 22 April 1775 under Captain James Clark from Lebanon, CT. A total of 677 men, just over half the male population of Lebanon in 1775, served in the town militias of the Continental Army of the Revolutionary War. Men from Lebanon were in every major battle fought in the North. The Lebanon Militia was an 18th century irregular militia, which defended the towne of Lebanon against the oppression of English tyranny. They wore no uniform, only a mix & match of civilian clothing with maybe some military clothing dating from the previous Wars.
Today, we are a group of Men, Women & Children with the common goal of re-creating the history of the Revolutionary War to the best of our abilities. We are Proud of our ability to portray Militiamen, Artillery, Camp Followers & Artificers.
