Emmerick's Chasseurs
Naked Soldiers

September 25th, 1777

Thursday last as a party of Captain EMMERICH's new corps of Chasseurs were bathing near Kingsbridge, he suddenly beat to arms, when they, with the greatest spirit imaginable, flew to their firelocks, and appeared naked, in order to have attacked any enemy that might be at hand; this so pleased their Captain, that he presented each man with a dollar, and gave them his thanks for their alertness.

Pennsylvania Ledger, October 29th, 1777.
