The Seventh Regiment, known as the silk stocking regiment for its prestigious roster of members, was the largest and most admired volunteer militia in the country during the nineteenth century. Its nucleus was formed in 1806 after British frigates, blockading New York Harbor, fired at passing vessels that resisted a search for British deserters, and in so doing killed an American helmsmen. The first four companies of artillery in what became the Seventh Regiment were created by volunteers after a mass rally called for reprisals for this death. It was given the name Seventh Regiment, National Guard, State of New York, in 1847. It ceased operating as an active regiment in 1947.
