Continental Haslets 1st Delaware

haslets-cover-800x600.jpg

First Legion is extremely pleased to present our rendition of Haslet's 1st Delaware Regiment of the American Revolution!   This regiment was one of the elite regiments of the early Continental army of 1776.  They were among the best uniformed, trained, and equipped of Washington's forces at the time of the Battles of New York and Long Island and were one of the very few units that wouldn't be classified strictly as "militia."  The 1st Delaware distinguished themselves well at the Continental defeat at Long Island and gave the British a taste of what the American fighting man was capable of.  We have presented them here in their mitre caps which was a unique feature of the unit.   We sincerely hope you enjoy them!
