4. The Loyalist military units
5. Todd Braisted about the King's American Regiment
One of the most distinguished and prominent Loyalist units, made up mostly of New Yorkers, was the King’s American Regiment, led by Colonel Edmund Fanning. The regiment served in six major campaigns across the length of the eastern seaboard. The officers and men fought in some of the bloodiest battles of the war, ending their service by being placed on the regular British Establishment, an honor bestowed on but a handful of Loyalist units.
