The Light Infantry Company of the
55th Regiment (1759-1764)
Based in the upper midwest, primarily Wisconsin, we strive to accurately protray light infantrymen of the time period and the 55th regiment. We focus not only on our uniforms and battles, but the daily life of the soldier.
We started in the fall of 1999, with our first event in August of 2000 at Fort Meigs. We have had members attend re-enactments as big as Fort Ticonderoga's and Fort Niagara's grand encampments, the Grand Encampment at Daniel Boone's homestead in Pennsylvania, and smaller ones in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Many of our members enjoy historical trekking and our unit tries to put an emphasis on that part of the hobby, so that we can achieve a greater understanding of the time period.
