militia muster

Often considered "ragtag" by the British regular army, the Massachusetts colonial militia was actually very well organized. With a few exceptions, able-bodied men between 16 and 60 years of age were required to serve. They were the main line of defense for the colony for nearly 150 years before the Revolution.
