The Battle of Monmouth
— 28 June 1778. 12:45 PM - 1:00 PM —Grenadiers were the heavy infantry of 18th-century armies. Normally, British regiments were composed of 10 companies - 8 line companies, 1 light infantry company, and 1 grenadier company. Agile, intelligent men were chosen for the light infantry while the regiment's biggest men were placed in the grenadier company. Tall bearskin caps made the grenadiers appear even larger.
