Welcome to the Internet home of the Third Continental Light Dragoons, Captain William Parsons Troop, a progressive American Revolutionary War enacting group founded in 2004.  The modern "3d CLD" recruits outside of  geographic boundaries and the unit boasts members from North and South Carolina as well as affiliations with individuals and units from Virginia and Tennessee.
