The First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry

This purely volunteer cavalry troop was the first
organized in defense of the colonies.

Today the Troop is certainly the older mounted military unit and quite possibly the oldest military unit of any kind that has been in continuous service to the Republic. The times that called it into being, and the character of the original members who fought through the seven years of the American Revolution, together forged concepts of service and a body of tradition that have given it continuity of purpose for almost 250 years.
