13-Star American Flag


Chase’s Regiment of Militia also known as the 13th New Hampshire Regiment of Militia was called up at Cornish, New Hampshire on September 22, 1777 as reinforcements for the Continental Army during the Saratoga Campaign. The regiment marched quickly to join the gathering forces of Gen. Horatio Gates as he faced British Gen. John Burgoyne in northern New York. The regiment served in Gen. William Whipple’s brigade of New Hampshire militia. With the surrender of Burgoyne’s Army on October 17 the regiment was disbanded on October 24, 1777. They would be called up again to protect the frontier of the state during the Royalton Raid of 1780.
