Roberts Rangers became the chief scouting arm of British Crown forces by the late 1750s in America. The British valued them highly for gathering intelligence about the enemy. Later, the company was revived as a Loyalist force during the American Revolutionary War. Nonetheless, a number of former ranger officers became Patriot commanders. Some ex-rangers also participated as patriot militiamen at the Battle of Concord Bridge.

"Robert Rogers" by Marc Grieves - "Rangers? Pshaw, I wouldn't trust 'em if I were you. There's somethin' wrong wi' 'em up here, if you takes my meaning. Comes from them givin' up all them proper rules o' warfare like proper civilized folk to fight like the Indians. Halfway to becoming savages themselves at this rate, I'd wager. Mark my words, boy - nothing good ever comes from doin' that."
