W. Britain's #17540 Butlers Tory Rangers
American Revolution

On September 15, 1777, General Sir Guy Carleton, the commander of British forces in Canada, commissioned Butler as "Commandant of a Corps of Rangers to serve with the Indians." Butler received authorization to raise as many as eight companies containing fifty-nine officers and men each. Ultimately, Butler recruited enough men to fill ten companies and was promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1780. Butler’s Rangers became one of the most active and feared Loyalist units to fight against American independence.
