Captured at Yorktown, "2 regiments artillery, 2 of guards, 2 of light-infantry, 7 of foot ("regiments of foot" were infantry)," which were enumerated separately from those German-speaking troops that served with the British:
2 regiments Anspachers (from the principality of Anspach-Bayreuth in what is now Germany)
the "Hereditary Prince's regiment of horse," a.k.a. the Prince Hereditaire Regiment, and the Erbprinz regiment. Many of these troops were from Hesse-Kassel, which led Americans to refer erroneously to all German speakers who fought with the British as "Hessians"
and 9 companies of "Yagers," a.k.a. Jägers or Jaegers. This regiment, also from Hesse-Kassel, was formed of expert riflemen who were recruited from among game keepers and foresters. The Jäger unit at Yorktown was commanded by Captain Johann Ewald, who left a memoir of his experiences.
