Ruppertsberg

Ruppertsberg is an Ortsgemeinde – a municipality belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde, a kind of collective municipality – in the Bad Dürkheim district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The municipality is a winegrowing centre with a long tradition in the field, is part of the Rhine-Neckar urban agglomeration. Ruppertsberg belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Deidesheim. In 1040, Ruppertsberg had its first documentary mention. Most it grew out of the Hoheburg beginning in 800. About 1100, the last Count of the Kraichgau donated the village to the Bishopric of Speyer, which enfeoffed the Knights of Ruppertsberg with it. In the 14th century, Imperial troops destroyed the castle, whereupon the Knights built a moated castle, the so-called Schloss, in the village's northeast. After the destruction wrought by the Thirty Years' War, only two families were left in Ruppertsberg. After the French Revolution, the village became part of the Department of Mont-Tonnerre, until in 1815, the Congress of Vienna assigned it, together with the rest of the Palatinate, to Bavaria.

After the Second World War, the new state of Rhineland-Palatinate was formed. Since 1973, Ruppertsberg has belonged to the Verbandsgemeinde of Deidesheim. In 2007, 63 % of the inhabitants were 19.4 % Evangelical. The rest adhered to none; the municipal election held on 7 June 2009 yielded the following results: Ruppertsberg's mayor since 2004 has been Ursula Knoll. At the mayoral election held on 7 June 2009, in which she faced no challengers, she was reëlected with 87.9% of the vote. The German blazon reads: In Gold ein in den Ecken gemauerter schwarzer Turm mit vier Zinnen über einer schwarzen Mauer mit je einer Zinnen rechts und links und mit einem offenen Spitztor, darin in Gold eine grünbestielte blaue Traube; the municipality's arms might in English heraldic language be described thus: Or a tower embattled of four and masoned at the corners sable on a wall of the same with a merlon at each end, in base a gateway with pointed arch of the field in which a bunch of grapes azure slipped vert.

The arms were approved in 1955 by the Mainz Ministry of the Interior. They replaced the old armorial bearing which bore the letters “BS” flanking a charge that does not seem to be identifiable, it looked like a rake or a harrow. Many explanations have been put forth; the current arms are meant to represent the Knights’ castle and, with the bunch of grapes, the local winegrowing. Ruppertsberg fosters partnerships with the following places: Courpière, Puy-de-Dôme, France Höchstädt an der Donau, Bavaria Saint Martin's Catholic Parish Church in Ruppertsberg is a three-naved Late Gothic building from the early 16th century. Worth seeing is the stone pulpit, created about 1510 with its images of saints and prophets; the former Teehaus is Ruppertsberg's landmark. It was built in 1840 a few hundred metres west of the village in the vineyards on the model of the one at the English Garden in Munich; the former tea house is a big rectangular pavilion with a glazed upper floor. Of the moated castle on the northeast side of the municipality, expanded into a residential castle in the 18th century under Damian Hugo Philipp von Schönborn, two of the original four wings have been preserved.

Owing to conversions, the building's character as a residential castle has been all but lost. The Ruppertsberger Weinkerwe is held each year on the last weekend in August; the Sunday of this weekend is Erlebnistag Deutsche Weinstraße. The municipality is characterized to a considerable extent by winegrowing and is among the Palatinate’s biggest winegrowing centres. Appellations are: Linsenbusch Hoheburg Gaisböhl Nußbien Spieß Reiterpfad Nearby Deidesheim station on the Pfälzische Nordbahn affords rail links to Bad Dürkheim and Neustadt an der Weinstraße. Moreover, buslines lead to surrounding places. Public transport is integrated into the VRN. East of the municipality runs Bundesstraße 271. In the southeast there is a connection to the Autobahn A 65 through the Deidesheim interchange.

List of United States militia units in the American Revolutionary War

Each of the Thirteen Colonies that became the United States when they declared their independence in 1776 had militia units that served on the Patriot side during the American Revolutionary War. The history of militia in the United States dates from the colonial era. Based on the English system, colonial militias were drawn from the body of adult male citizens of a community, town, or local region; because there was no standing English Army before the English Civil War, subsequently the English Army and the British Army had few regulars garrisoning North America, colonial militia served a vital role in local conflicts in the French and Indian Wars. Before shooting began in the American War of Independence, American revolutionaries took control of the militia system, reinvigorating training and excluding men with Loyalist inclinations. Regulation of the militia was codified by the Second Continental Congress with the Articles of Confederation; the revolutionaries created a full-time regular army—the Continental Army—but because of manpower shortages the militia provided short-term support to the regulars in the field throughout the war.

In colonial era Anglo-American usage, militia service was distinguished from military service in that the latter was a commitment for a fixed period of time of at least a year, for a salary, whereas militia was only to meet a threat, or prepare to meet a threat, for periods of time expected to be short. Militia persons were expected to provide their own weapons, equipment, or supplies, although they may be compensated for losses or expenditures. Many of the states continued to maintain their militia after the American Revolution until after the U. S. Civil War. Many of the state National Guards trace their roots to the militia from the American Revolution; the lists below show the known militia units by state for the original Vermont. Revolutionary War units: The first militia in Delaware was formed when Swedish settlers took up arms to defend Fort Christina against Dutch invaders. During the American Revolutionary War, Delaware raised several units of militia in support of the Patriot side of the war.

In the War of 1812, all of the Delaware volunteer units saw combat at Lewes, where they comprised the majority of force that drove off a British naval squadron seeking control of the Delaware River. Despite the federal government prohibiting volunteer units the Mexican–American War, a volunteer unit raised in Delaware would serve in the battles of Contreras, Molino del Rey, Chapultepec, losing so many men that the unit was nicknamed "The Bloody 11th." During the American Civil War, Delaware would raise multiple units in support of the Union cause. During the Spanish–American War, the 1st Delaware Volunteer Infantry was mustered into federal service but not deployed abroad. With the passage of the Militia Act of 1903, all state militia units were folded into the National Guard of the United States turning the state militias from a state-funded and controlled force to a reserve component of the federal military. Revolutionary War Units: 1st Battalion, New Castle County, 1777 2nd Regiment, New Castle County, 1778–81 2nd Battalion of Militia, 1776 2nd Regiment of Militia, 1780 7th Regiment of Militia, 1782 Flying Camp Battalion, 1776 Kent County Militia Latimer's Independent Company, 1776 The Georgia Militia existed from 1733 to 1879.

It was planned by General James Oglethorpe prior to the founding of the Province of Georgia, the British colony that would become the U. S. state of Georgia. One reason for the founding of the colony was to act as a buffer between the Spanish settlements in Florida and the British colonies to the north. Revolutionary War units: Emanuel's Regiment of Militia, 1781–82 Georgia Hussars, 1736 Liberty Independent Troop, 1776 1st Brigade Georgia Militia 1st Regiment Georgia Militia, Light Horse Troop Gale's Independent Company of Artillery, 1779–80 Smith's Artillery, 2nd and 3rd Companies, 1783 34th Battalion of Militia, 1776 37th Battalion of Militia, 1777 Extraordinary Regiment, 1780 Flying Camp Regiment, 1776 Flying Camp Regiment, 1776 Flying Camp Regiment, 1776 Lansdale's Detachment, 1783 Marbury's Detachment, 1784 Washington County Militia Company, 1777 Revolutionary War units: Revolutionary War units: Revolutionary War units: The North Carolina militia units were first established in 1775 by the Third North Carolina Provincial Congress on the eve of the American Revolution.

The militia units were centered on the 35 counties that existed in the Province of North Carolina. The units fought against the British and Cherokee Native Americans that aligned themselves with British forces; the units included military district brigades established in 1776, county regiments, four battalions, one independent corps of light horse. Four regiments were located in counties that became part of the Southwest Territory in 1790 and Tennessee in 1796; the size of brigades could be up to a few thousand volunteers. Brigades were commanded by a brigadier general. Regiments were commanded by a colonel and made up of a number of companies commanded by captains with about 50 men in each company. During engagements, one or more companies of regiments may have been involved in actions and commanded by the regimental or brigade commander. In 1778, Major General John Ashe was selected to command all North Carolina militia and State Troops. Brigade commanders reported to him. Separate from the North Carolina militia, the state provided 10 numbered regiments to the Continental Army that were referred to as the North Carolina Line.

The following are the North Carolina militia Brigades and Regiments, along with the dates establi
