In 1757 Robert Rodgers wrote a set of 28 rules for his Rangers to follow in conducting irregular warfare against the French and their Indian allies. These rules became a model for all the Ranger and Light Infantry units that followed in American military history. They are still taught to US Army Rangers today. In the Massachusetts Battalion, these rules are followed as operational guidelines by Partridge’s Light Infantry. After each rule we will translate them into modern terms and explain how they apply to our portrayal.
