(The 1st Rhode Island Regiment was a militia regiment from Rhode Island that served in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783). Like most regiments of the Continental Army, the unit went through several incarnations and name changes. It became well-known as the “Black Regiment” because, for a time, it had several companies of African American soldiers.)
