SCAN-06 The Battle of Saratoga 1777, Continental Army,
The 1st Canadian Regiment,
2 Line Infantry
The 1st Canadian Regiment
This regiment of the Continental Line, under the command of Colonel Moses Hazen,
was recruited at large during 1776,
and was known as "Congress's Own,"
because it was not attached to the quota of any one of the states.
It was composed of men from all the states and from Canada,
but most were from Pennsylvania and Canada.
Throughout the war,
it was known as a splendid command.
The uniform of the battalion companies until 1779,
was brown faced with white.
After that date the facings were changed to red.
v In August 1777,
the regiment was assigned to Benedict Arnold
on his expedition in relief of the Siege of Fort Stanwix.
It then saw service in both Battles of Saratoga as part of Ebenezer_Learned's brigade.
