Hessians


Something we haven't had to my knowledge in the UK is anyone recreating the German troops that served the British Crown in the American war. There are however some great groups over in Germany recreating them and they have the advantage of being able to take part in the growing Seven Years War scene in Europe. And they speak German!

  1. The Rall is wrong, isn't it? Probably due to a misinterpretation of two famous tables...

  2. There are a few Hessian Re-enactment Regiments in the USA too. Regiment Von Huyn is the one with which I have the most familiarity. The Captain and Feldwebel speak German, and a few others do too, and all commands are in German. They have a Facebook page. There is also a Regiment von Riedesel and a Von Bose Regiment. https://www.facebook.com/Regiment-Von-Huyn-166619843389892/?fref=ts
