Gorham's Rangers

In 1762, the regiment was part of Burton's Corps sent from North America to assist the British force already besieging Havana. It arrived in Cuba on June 27 and took part in the siege and capture of Havana suffering heavy losses from sickness during the following months. After the capitulation of Havana, the remaining rangers were drafted into the depleted British regiments.

  1. I used to reenact as a Gorehams Ranger in the 1990's. I took part in the 1995 Grand Encampment they had at Louisbourg as a ranger.
