In the Foreword to the Bicentennial Edition it states: This book, believed to be the first militia manual printed in America, may well have been carried by Colonel George Washington of the Virginia Militia during his service in the French and Indian War, or used to train the Minutemen who stood at Lexington and Concord, and again at Bunker Hill, to oppose the armed might of the world's greatest military power. The concept of individual citizens' responsibility for public safety and order, as set forth here, was a fundamental principle among those who were to become the founding fathers of this Nation. And the words of command that live on in these pages are those that echoed two centuries ago, along with the reverberations of "he short heard 'round the world". To those who helped forge the proud heritage of America's militia, and to those who honor and preserve the traditions of the "Citizen Soldier" today, this book is respectfully dedicated.

It was founded in 1831 by the Duke of Wellington, Sir Arthur Wellesley. RUSI was founded in 1831 – making it the oldest defence and security think tank in the world. Its original mission was to study naval and military science. Subsequently, Commander Henry Downes, Royal Navy, assembled a group with a view to forming a committee for action, to which King George's First ADC was commanded to convey "His Majesty's gracious and high approbation of the undertaking and of the principles on which it is proposed to conduct it", which were stated to be suitable for "a strictly scientific and professional society. On 25 June 1831 a resolution that the institution be established was put by the future Field Marshal Viscount Hardinge and seconded by the future Rear-Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort, the famous hydrographer. The first name adopted was the Naval and Military Museum: this was altered in 1839 to the United Service Institution, and in 1860 to the Royal United Service Institution by a royal charter of incorporation.
