The First New Hampshire Regiment is a recreation of one of the three regiments of “regulars” from New Hampshire to serve in the Continental Army under Gen. Washington during the American Revolution. We do this as a hobby for our own enjoyment, and to educate people about the unit and that time period of our history. The current regiment is composed of a company of Line, or battalion troops, a Fife and Drum Music Company, camp followers, and most recently, a reactivated Artillery Company manning a reproduction 3 lb. field cannon.
The unit participates in parades, honor guards, encampments, battle reenactments, and similar activities. We have appeared at events all over the East Coast from Georgia to Maine, in Canada, and even in England. We are also charter members of The Continental Line, an organization of more than 60 reenactment units.
