King's American Regiment
Recruiting Notice


ALL active young men, fit for Light Horsemen, and willing to serve his Majesty King GEORGE, for the space of two years, or during the present rebellion, have now a fair and honourable opportunity of revenging themselves on the authors of the many cruelties and horrid murders committed on their relations, friends, and fellow subjects;

of testifying their loyalty to the best of Kings, and manifesting their abhorrence and aversion to this unnatural and unprovoked rebellion;

by applying to Lieut. Col. George CAMPBELL, commanding the King's own American Regiment, now quartered in this town, who has power to raise a body of light horse, to be attached to and serve constantly with the said regiment.

Each loyal and smart young recruit shall receive three guineas bounty, and a crown to drink his Majesty's health, be provided with free quarters, a good horse, pay, cloathing, arms, accoutrements, and every other requisite, fit for a light dragoon, such as a cap and helmet, a brace of good pistols before him, a keen edged sword by his side, and good boots and spurs.

Thus equipped as a Gentleman Dragoon, he must carry sure and certain victory, acquire honour to himself, and render service to his Sovereign and injured Country.

Savannah, 5th June, 1781.


N.B. Any person who brings a recruit shall receive a reward of half a guinea.

Such serviceable, active, able, and young dragoon horses, as are to be sold, will be purchased, and a generous price given, by applying at the Colonel's quarters, the yellow house near the west gate.

Lt. Col. and Commanding.

The Royal Georgia Gazette, (Savannah), June 7th, 1781.
