Loyal American Rangers
LOYAL AMERICAN RANGERS. Raised in New York by Major William Odell in late 1780 from among Continental army prisoners and deserters, this Provincial regiment was sent to Jamaica in January 1781. It was to be sent to help defend Pensacola, but that town surrendered to the Spanish on 9 May before the regiment arrived. A detachment was later sent to raid Black River, Honduras, in August 1782. After Odell's death on 6 January 1783, the regiment was merged with the duke of Cumberland's regiment.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
