Camp DiCarlo, Framingham, MA

  During the 19th Century, most American cities had an elite cavalry troop that escorted high government officials, presidents and other visiting personages. While part of the state militia with the mission defending the state from invasion or putting down insurrection, the cavalry’s first obligation was to wear resplendent uniforms mounted on well-groomed horses. Some of these units, such as the 1st and 2d Companies, Governor’s Horse Guard of Connecticut; First Troop, Philadelphia City Cavalry still exist. Many units such as Squadron A of New York; the Essex Troop of Newark; and the Charleston Dragoons have faded into history.
