Captain Morrill's Company
Captain Morrill's Company is based on an American Revolutionary Militia Unit that had its roots in Epsom, N.H. It was first known as Captain Andrew McClary's Company. Captain McClary was killed during the battle at Bunker Hill. Amos Morrill was promoted to Captain and the unit was then called Captain Morrill's Company. Amos Morrill was with Ethan Allen at the taking of Ticonderoga and was one of the eight men to go into the enemy's camp at night and demand surrender "in the name of Jehovah and the Continental Army". Amos Morrill left Epsom in 1793 with his wife, 2 daughters and 4 sons and settled in St. Albans, Vermont. Today the Company was formed for those Patriotic Citizens who enjoy the hobby of re-enacting colonial life of the eighteenth century. Our purpose is to bring history to life for today's citizens and instill a sense of our past in school children that they too might retain a sense of our heritage won on the battlefields by our ancestors . We can do Colonial living education programs for schools and historical societies. We also do Parades, Encampments,Cannon Salutes, and Memorial Services. All programs for Veterans are free of charge, including Memorial Day observances. It is important to note that while we attempt an accurate portrayal of events , we strive to have fun while we do so. We teach, We learn, and We enjoy what we do. Please be patient as pages load, (for navigation labels, scroll up and click on page desired) as there are lots of pictures, and information to come. Thank you!
