Our volunteer members further this educational mission by conducting presentations to area schools, historical societies and anyone else interested in having history brought to life for learners of all ages. We also collaborate with local municipalities and other non-profits for various living history events and celebrations throughout the year. Many of these events include setting up weekend encampments such as the Fort at No. 4 in Charlestown, NH, occupying the various historic sites such as Minute Man National Park in Concord and Lexington, MA, and participating in one-day events such as the annual American Independence Festival in Exeter, NH. Much of our activities include parades, firing and drill demonstrations, including battle re-enactments and the depiction of daily life of a British soldier in the 18th century.

For information regarding our mandated filings, contact Capt. Shaun Timberlake.

Thank you for your support.


HIS MAJESTY'S
TENTH REGIMENT of FOOT
in AMERICA, Inc.

Bringing our history to life since 1968.

XHis Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot in America is a historically re-created infantry unit formed to portray the service of the British Army during the American War for Independence.

Composed of three types of soldiers, Grenadiers, Light Infantry, and Battalion, as well as a company of Music and a Corps of Civilian Volunteers, the members of the Tenth are accurately uniformed, equipped, and trained in 18th century military drill and life so that we appear in public as members of the British Army would have in 1775.

You are invited to browse through this web site and learn more about the Tenth Foot. If you are motivated and have the time and the dedication, maybe you too can become part of America's premier re-created British Regiment.

The Tenth Regiment played an important role in the early events of the American Revolution. On April  19th, 1775, the Light Infantry and Grenadier companies were part of the expeditionary force sent by General Gage to capture the arms being stockpiled by the militia in Concord, MA. On that day, the Light Infantry Company was present at both Lexington Green and Concord's North Bridge when the First Shot and the Shot Heard 'Round the World were fired.  Both companies were engaged in the skirmish at Bloody Angle, near Lincoln, MA, and were joined by the Battalion companies, who had come out as part of Hugh Earl Percy's relief column, for the desperate retreat back to Boston along what has become known as Battle Road.

At the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775, the Grenadier Company took part in those three fateful charges up Breed's Hill towards Prescott's fortified line, while the Light Infantry Company participated in the ill-fated attack along the beach against Stark's men guarding the rebel's left flank. The Tenth also fought in the Battle of Long Island, the Invasion of Manhattan Island, the Battle of Germantown, the Battle at Monmouth Courthouse, and the defense of Newport and Quaker Hill, eventually being ordered* back to England in September, 1778.

*HISTORICAL NOTE: When a regiment was ordered home during the Revolutionary War, the Officers, NCOs, and Musicians returned to Britain to recruit and rebuild the regiment. Those private soldiers still fit for service stayed in America and were "drafted" as replacements to regiments that remained to continue in the war.
