Compagnie de Lery is now official and looking for members!

We are a partisan-style campaign unit based in NY.

For more info see our link under "organizations"

or contact me directly: lapetitguerre@yahoo.com

Partisan like the Acadians that served with Boishébert?

Partisan like the guys who bested Rogers'...repeatedly.

Seriously, we are modeled after a unit on a raid into NY/ New England.

De Lery raided Fort Bull in March, 1756 and commanded the advance party of milice and Indians during the Oswego campaign. Was later wounded on the Plains of Abraham.

There were various other men (Langy, Langlade, Marin, etc.) but Fort Bull was my first battle as a Frenchman, so it's a little closer to home.

Mario

PS- I'll have to look into the Acadians... Sounds interesting.

So, clothes and weapons would basically be the usual issued to the milice and marines? I am looking for what might have been used by the Acadians, which I suspect is somewhat different. In other words, partisans without a home parish and not milice. And outside of the normal supply chains.

That is correct. I haven't looked into the Acadians, but if I find anything I'll let you know.
