Snowshoemen in King George's War
From a suggestion from a reader I thought I would post about Snowshoemen who were according to this section of the book 'The First Way of War' were the first type of Rangers - assembled ready to respond to incursions from Abenaki and the like when war erupted. Worth reading the section and you can read about the young Robert Rogers joining one of these 50-man companies which in their early life were primarily defensive in nature. See also this page on reenactor's Harmon's Snowshoemen. The page is being revised at the moment but worth a look when finished.
