Adding to my American army I already have two mounted regiments. One of American regular Dragoon and a militia regiment in hunting shirts and top hats. But I just had to add these fine fellows. As militia they most likely paid for their own uniforms. And from the looks of These fellows they must have been from the upper crust of society. Not content with plain uniforms they modeled theirs on the European hussars that graced so many Napoleonic battlefields.

Unfortunately, on the only occasion when they were present at a battle, their red uniforms caused American infantry to rout, thinking they had enemy cavalry to their rear.

Ha! I might add that into my next game. When they appear on the table units within sight of them have to roll morale.

Any idea what the unit strength was?

There were 130 at Plattsburgh.
