Group Description

Greetings and felicitations!

Welcome to the Battalion Dispatch where you, the member, can post messages for the benefit of the entire unit; ask questions; chat real time with other members; hold company CO briefings; upload pictures and other files pertinent to the unit or our historical period. This is an opportunity for everyone to interact at some level besides encampments or reenactments. The Dispatch was NOT created to supplant the Journal. The Battalion Journal will still be a valuable resource for articles on 18th century food, clothing, gear, military ordnance and news regarding our companies' activities and all our encouraged to subscribe.

Thank you for your interest in His Majesty's Independent Companies of Rogers' Rangers, or Jaeger's Battalion, Rogers' Rangers, as we are popularly known.

Jaeger's Battalion is a national, colonial period historical reenactment group headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan (where we are registered as a Michigan nonprofit corporation).

The Battalion is organized into number of different companies, based on both the structure of Rogers' original corps and our members' geographic locations. We have members in at least twenty states, plus in Canada and England. Jaeger's Battalion is a family oriented unit, with over 150 families on our roster.

We are the oldest, and the largest, recreated Rogers' Rangers unit in the country, tracing our history back to 1956.

Our main interest is the accurate recreation of Rogers’ Rangers of the French & Indian War era. Our activities include reenacting, black powder shooting and hunting, trekking, and researching, and writing about the period. We also occasionally do some Revolutionary War reenacting as the King's Rangers or the Queen's Rangers. Robert Rogers commanded both units during the American Revolution.
