Warrior Culture : Revolutionary War
Subculture : Minutemen

Unlike formal units of the Continental Army they did not receive much formal military training or drilling and they were required arm and equip themselves. They were however a highly mobile, remarably diverse quick reaction force. Allowing the Revolutionaries the ability to block enemy troop movements, and set up ambushes. Pining down British forces until slower Continental Army or standard militia units could respond.

Minutemen were among the first to fight in the Revolutionary war at Concord, MA. And their forces made up around a quarter of all militia forces during the War for American Independence.

Proving the premise of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. As a group of self armed, largely self trained citizens helped to bring a tyrannical dictator to his knees through quick mobilization.
