Rogers Rangers became the chief scouting arm of British Crown forces by the late 1750s in America. The British valued them highly for gathering intelligence about the enemy. Later, the company was revived as a Loyalist force during the American Revolutionary War. Nonetheless, a number of former ranger officers became Patriot commanders. Some ex-rangers also participated as patriot militiamen at the Battle of Concord Bridge.

Rogers Rangers possibly the most famous of the Ranger units. Its notoriety being created firstly by Rogers' own writings(he was not ashamed to put himself in the lime light) and more recently by the film Northwest Passage in 1940 starring Spencer Tracey.
