Lieutenant Colonel Robert Rogers was a hero of the French and Indian War who won several famous battles against French forces with his elite unit known as "Rogers' Rangers." However, when the Revolution arrived General George Washington denied him entry into the Continental Army for fear he was a British spy. An infuriated Rogers turned to the British, and to this day both the [[#|United States Army]] Rangers and an elite Canadian regiment can trace their roots back to Rogers.
