The first regiment of regular troops sent to
America from France. Raised in Savoy by the Prince of Carignan in 1644;
employed for some years in the service of the king of France, and after
the peace of the Pyrenees, was regularly incorporated in the French
army. Fought against the Turks in 1664, and ordered to America the
following year. With the original regiment was incorporated the fragment
of a regiment of Germans, the whole under the command of Colonel de
Salieres. The regiment served with distinction in Canada until 1668,
when it was ordered home; a large number of officers and men, however,
remained in the colony, where they were given generous grants of land.
The regiment was reconstructed in France, and under the name of the
Regiment of Lorraine existed until 1794. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) Gives strength to
