Hurrol,
Hope these full fill your curiousity about a participation of a regiment
known as the New Jersey "Blues" in the revolution!! I did my best!!

The ones numbered (1) through (9) has some mention of the New Jersey Blues,"
but there some urls that Everyone has to see that I stumbed over while
looking for this group!! Originally this group was referred to as the "Royal
Province of New Jersey," later called the "New Jersey's Frontier Guard," and
by the time the Revolutionary War had evolved, this group called itself the
"New Jersey's Blues."!!! ...and from what I have seen going through a number
of searchs, this same name was adopted by those who served from the same New
Jersey area when the the Civil War finally took place! What a notorious
history this group has had.....Rhonda Houston

New Jersey's Blues were referred to as "New Jersey's Frontier Guard"
originally!
Twenty years before the American Revolution, then called the "Royal Province
of New Jersey" prepared itself for the greatest war the world had ever seen.
Poised on the western frontier of the dominions of Great Britain were the
armies of Louis XV and his Indian allies - intent on protecting vast French
claims in the New World. The colonial forces first clashed near modern
Pittsburgh, unleashing a fury of Indian raids from the frontiers of Virginia
to the wilds of Maine. At home, the Frontier Guard defended the western
settlements of Sussex County by constantly patrolling the wilderness between
the fourteen forts on the provincial frontier. In the years of war which
followed, New Jersey's provincial regiment, the "Jersey Blues," fought
valiantly in battles against the French and Indians at Oswego (1756), Lake
George (1757), and Ticonderoga (1758).

NEW JERSEY DURING THE REVOLUTION
On Aug. 5th ,1775, the Provincial Congress of NJ adapted " the plan for
further regulating the Militia, etc."
" Resolved, 1. That the several County or (where there is no County)
Township Committees do transmit the names of all the Militia officers chosen
with in their respective Districts to the Provincial Congress, or the
Committee of Safety, to be by them commissioned, agreeable to the directions
of the Continental Congress.
Resolved, 2. That all officers above the rank of a Captain, not already
chosen or appointed, pursuant to an ordinance of this Congress made at the
last session, be appointed by the Congress or, during their recess, by the
Committee of Safety."

About 26 regiments, total strength of regular militia, were to be formed.
They were to be apportioned among the counties: Bergen -1 regiment, Essex -2
regiments or four battalions, Middlesex -2 regiments, Monmouth -3 regiments,
Morris -2 regiments and one battalion, Sussex -2 regiments and one
battalion, Burlington 2 regiments and one company of rangers, Gloucester -3
battalions, Salem -1 regiment, Cumberland -2 battalions, Cape May one
battalion, Somerset- 2 regiments, and Hunterdon- 4 regiments.

(Note-A regiment at full strength was usually 10 companies of 60 to 80 men,
a battalion was 4 to 8 companies)
Also were formed Minute-man Companies-

"That for the purpose of effectually carrying into execution the
recommendation of the Continental Congress respecting the appointment of
minute-men, four thousand able-bodied effective men be enlisted and enrolled
in the several counties in this Province, under officers to be appointed and
commissioned by this Congress or Committee of Safety, who shall hold
themselves in constant readiness, on the shortest notice, to march to any
place where their assistance maybe required for the defense of this or any
neighboring colony."

These minute-men were to serve 4 months terms of inactive duty,On Aug. 5th

place where their assistance maybe required for the defense of this or any
neighboring colony."

These minute-men were to serve 4 months terms of inactive duty, , standing
by, then to be relieved "unless upon actual service". Each company was to
have 64 privates, and to be formed into 10 battalions for the entire
Province:

Bergen County - one batt. of 4 companies, Essex - one batt. of 6 companies,
Middlesex - one batt. of 6 companies, Monmouth - one batt. of 6 companies,
Somerset - one batt. of 5 companies, Morris - one batt. of 6 companies,
Sussex - one batt. of 5 companies, Hunterdon - one batt. of 8 companies,
Burlington - one batt. of 5 companies, Glouster and Salem- one batt. of
seven companies with 4 from Glouster and 3 from Salem, Cumberland - 3
companies, Cape May - one company

This act provided for taxes and the resulting funds to be devoted to the
expenses of raising, equipping and supplying the Militia, up to the value of
Ten thousand pounds.
AND IT GOES MERRILY ON.....

Any suggestions?
