RE: [War Of 1812] Most ubiquitous and formidable American units in the war
- Off the top of my head I would say for the regulars the 21st U. States
Infantry and the 25th U. States Infantry. They may not have fought in the
most actions (though I think they are up at the top) but they certainly
earned a reputation as "elite".
In terms of militia I believe that the American unit that saw the most
action was in fact the New York State Militia. I can't think of an action
on the Niagara Frontier from 1812 to 1814 that they weren't involved in?
(Sometimes from the sidelines watching but.)

Which American units saw the most action throughout the course of the war,
both regulars and militia? Also, were there any units that earned the
reputation for being particularly reliable or maybe even "elite" as the war
