"The Light Horse of the City of Philadelphia, or "Philadelphia Light Horse", was established in 1774. It was a volunteer militia unit, formed by "a group of prosperous gentlemen" (according to Uniformology's book on the Continental Light Dragoons)…."

Excellent. I'm working on a group of this unit in 54mm.

Giles has done a great job with the mounted arm of the American army in the AWI.

Love that unit. Mine like to loot and forage in New Jersey. Errrr…. They like to prevent the British from looting and foraging. Yeah. That sounds better. Mine are made from the long OOP Firing Line figures.

Purely coincidentally, my son served with them in Kuwait. Slightly different uniform, though.
