Welcome to the First Regiment of Light Dragoons, 5th Troop. We are a non-profit, educationally based, living history group devoted to the accurate portrayal of the congressional cavalry troops  during the American War of Independence.  Based in the Chicago area, we have members from Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.  The unit's purpose is to present to the public a re-creation of the soldiers and civilians associated with the first dragoons during the Summer of 1777, with an emphasis on research, education, authenticity, fellowship and family. The First Regiment is a member of an umbrella organization, The North West Territory Alliance (NWTA), which is a non-profit educational organization that studies and recreates the culture, lifestyle, and arts during  the time of the American Revolution, 1775-1783. The First Dragoons welcome participation by singles, couples and families.
