Hessian Soldiers

Hessians ( or ) were German soldiers who served as auxiliaries to the British Army during the American Revolutionary War. They took their name from the German states of Hesse-Kassel and Hesse-Hanau, which were in the habit of hiring out their professional armies for profit to larger countries. Hessians were contracted by Great Britain and others in several 18th century European wars, but they are most widely associated with the American Revolution.
