Welcome to the 3rd York Regiment, Captain Robinson's Rifle Company!
During the War of 1812, Upper Canada only had 5 rifle companies. Our group has recreated Captain Robinson's Rifle Company that was part of the 3rd Regiment of the York Militia. This company appealed us for several reasons: 1. Members of our group had ancestors in the original company, 2. We already had the equipment and related training as riflemen, 3. Robinson's Company took part in many key battles in the War of 1812, and 4. Most of us think we look pretty good in dark green wool..... We will be steadily adding to this site to give the history of the actual company, the research that lead to our uniforms, and the events we will be taking part in.
