Continental Line/1st American Regiment Standing Firing, 1779-87

After the conclusion of the American Revolution in 1783, Congress ordered the Continental Army to disband, and General George Washington resigned his commission as Commander-in-Chief. A Congressional committee under Alexander Hamilton sought opinions on a standing army – Washington suggested a small force of only 2,631 men. The First American Regiment, also known as The United States Regiment or the 1st Infantry Regiment, was the first peacetime regular army infantry unit authorized by the Continental Congress after American independence. Organized in August 1784, it served primarily on the frontier beyond (west of) the Appalachian Mountains. This figure represents how a 1st American Regiment soldier would have appeared in 1777-87 firing his Charleville smoothbore flintlock musket.
