Homer Ripley's Description of The Columbia Foot Dragoons
"Company F, of the Columbia Foot Dragoons is typical of the militias of the early 1800's. Every able bodied male from the age of 16 to 60 was subject to a call to duty by the local militia commander in the time of emergency. While these were local units and not State or Federal troops, they would have been called into Federal service in the event of war or other national emergency. These militia units served the country well in the American War for Independence, the War of 1812, the Mexican and Civil Wars and the Spanish American War."
