The Culpeper Minutemen was a militia group formed in 1775 in the district around Culpeper, Virginia. Like the minutemen across the British colonies, the men were drilled in military tactics and trained to respond to emergencies "at a minute's notice."
The Culpeper minutemen fought alongside the American patriots during first year of the American Revolution, and are remembered for their company flag. The flag was a white banner showcasing a rattlesnake, featuring the phrases "Liberty or Death" and "Don't Tread on Me".
In October 1775, the minutemen were sent to Hampton in response to the British naval ships attempting to land there. The riflemen were able to effectively shoot the men manning the ships, cannons, and the fleet eventually sailed away.
They next fought in the Battle of Great Bridge in December 1775. The battle was a total American victory. There were accounts of the battle that suggested the British were unnerved by the reputation of the frontiersmen.
