American Revolution: Cornwallis’ Elite Soldiers

American Revolution: Cornwallis’ Elite Soldiers

Today we are once again visiting the American Revolution.

It’s a war that I am only just learning about.

I am joined once more by author Robbie McNiven to find out more about the 33rd Regiment of foot during the revolution.

The 33rd was arguably Britain’s most elite regiment of the era and they fought in almost every major battle of the revolution.

Their colonel was none other than Charles Cornwallis – famous in America as the man who surrendered at Yorktown.

But despite this he was an excellent officer that cared about his men and was determined to forge the 33rd into a unit to be proud of.

Robbies book on the regiment during the revolution is called “the Pattern” and and here is a link to it –
