The Legion is a composite force of infantry, able to fight in a battle line and as skirmishers.

These men are professional soldiers, the best that can be found in the United States. Each man is trained to fight with guts, independence and determination. All are schooled in the tactics of formal, European fighting, where giving fire from rigid lines is the norm, yet they are also capable of fighting in a flexible, loose skirmish fashion that is ideally suited to war against the natives. The Legion may not be numerous, but it makes up for that in fighting spirit!

The Founding Fathers were very suspicious of armies and believed that a citizen militia was quite sufficient for national defence. Events proved them wrong. Formed in 1791 to fight the natives, the Legion was America’s first standing army. Under the leadership of “Mad” Anthony Wayne – so called not because he was insane, but because he was “mad for it” and always up for a fight – US units were properly trained for the first time. After Wayne was killed in 1796, his Legion was reorganised into more conventional infantry regiments, which still exist as combat units in the US Army today.
