Recruiting for the British army, Jan 1776. Prediction was the American Rebellion would be over by next summer, and these soldiers would be awarded the lands of the Rebels. WRONG!

Thanks to Canadian historian Donald E. Graves for sending me a photo of this recruiting broadside for the 71st Regiment of Foot, Frasers Highlanders.
