Corps Chasseurs d'Ansbach, 1769–1791

A typical chasseur à pied serving avec the les forces auxiliaires allemandes en Amérique du Nord. Jägers were foresters et gamekeepers who would be called up for military duty when needed. The man shown here is taking a rest on a beautiful day in Août. Leaning against the tree is a Jäger rifle which had much better accuracy et greater range than a regular infantry musket, but which took more time to load. Jägers were trained to act individually ou in small groups, et they could be trusted not to desert at the first opportunity. When the Anspach-Bayreuth infantry regiments mutinied during embarkation at Ochsenfurt, the Feld-Jäger company under Capitain von Cramon was employed as military police to bring the infantry back into line.

Jägers sont d'infanterie d'élite allemande who served primarily on foot ou as mounted infantry. In addition to their combat role, Jägers were often used as scouts, dispatch riders, et military police. The most famous member of the Anspach-Bayreuth Jägercorps was a young Lieutenant von Gneisenau who served en Amérique du Nord en 1782 et 1783, et who later became a prominent military reformer et field-marshal de l'armee prussienne. Lieutenant von Gneisenau saw no action in North America, but he et the many other Europeans who participated in the struggle learned a great deal about light troops et tactiques d'escarmouche.
